Health Promotion Policy Grants

AMA Alliance Health Promotion Policy Grants (HPPG) provide seed money to county and state Alliances for programs or activities inspired by AMA Alliance health promotion policy.

The projects should provide ongoing opportunities for promoting the AMA Alliance and its mission to build healthier communities.


Guidelines

Applications must be received at least two weeks before your event.  Alliances are eligible for one HPPG award per calendar year.  Grant funds cannot be used to issue prize money or gift cards.

HPPG Program Objectives

  1. Fund projects that increase AMA Alliance visibility in a positive and proactive way.
  2. Fund projects that help put AMA Alliance policy into action by providing information or a service of value to your community.
  3. Fund projects that will provide opportunities for ongoing involvement in a discussion of topics that are important to the family of medicine.
  4. Include the spouses of resident physicians and medical students and medical society members in your project as sources of ideas and support for projects.

Apply Before Your Event

HPPG applications must be received at least two weeks before the event is scheduled to take place. In order to facilitate nationwide participation, each alliance is eligible for one HPPG award per calendar year.

Note About Grant Awards

Although applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, it can still take several weeks for an application to be approved, a check processed, and mailed to the project coordinator. Please plan ahead when requesting program funding.

Alliances are limited to one grant award per calendar year and funding is never guaranteed.
