Community Benefit Grants

Community Benefit grants are available for local not-for-profit agencies in Reid’s service area. Not all programs that benefit the community meet the IRS definition of a community benefit. To be considered eligible for a community benefit grant, a program or service must meet an identified community need and at least one of the following community benefit objectives. The program or service must:

  • Improve access to health care
  • Enhance community health
  • Advance knowledge through health education or research
  • Relieve a government burden

Reid is required by IRS regulation to conduct a community needs assessment every three years and then must develop a plan to address top priorities. This plan must be reviewed and progress reported to the IRS annually as part of the Hospital 990. The Community Benefit Committee of Reid has identified the following top priorities for our community:

  • Access to care – any program that will enhance individuals receiving health care or access to programs designed to improve lifestyle choices related to overall health status
  • Mental health and substance abuse – Reid has chosen to continue to partner with community agencies that support this population but to also develop strategies to improve education in the school system as well as a targeted population of pregnant women with substance abuse.
  • Nutrition, physical activity and weight (these three areas influence many major illnesses such as diabetes, kidney and heart disease). Programs that influence healthier choices will be considered.

In the grant request please explain how your organization’s program meets the prioritized need for that specific grant cycle.  The grant applications are scored on the ability to meet the prioritized need for the applicable grant cycle. 


Grant Cycles for 2015 are:

1st Cycle:  Access to Care

Nov 22, 2014 – Feb 27, 2015

2nd Cycle:  Mental Health & Substance Abuse

Feb 28,2015 – May 29, 2015

3rd Cycle:  Nutrition, Physical Activity & Weight

May 30, 2015 – Aug 28, 2015


Grant requests must be submitted via the online application form.

The Community Benefit Committee of the Board of Directors will make the final decision. All applicants will be notified of the Board’s decision.
