Maryland CHRC: Request for Proposals

The Maryland Community Health Resources Commission (CHRC), established in 2005, works to expand access to health care services in underserved communities in Maryland. CHRC’s most recent call for proposals, Supporting Community Health Resources: Building Capacity, Expanding Access, and Improving Population Health, was released on November 3, 2014. The program will award grants to community health resources serving Maryland residents that are working in the following program areas:

  • Promoting comprehensive women’s health services and reducing infant mortality rates
  • Expanding access to dental care
  • Supporting new access points and expanding primary care capacity
  • Building safety net provider capacity

Over the last nine years, the Commission has awarded 143 grants totaling $42 million. Funded programs have provided services to over 144,000 patients, resulting in more than 439,000 patient visits.

For more information on how to apply for funding please see CHRC’s Request for Proposals.
