Metrocrest Hospital Authority is partnering with The Dallas Foundation. Our funding process will be managed through The Dallas Foundation's online application portal. Questions about the funding process should be addressed to: Krista Weinstein, or 972.247.8023.

Please check back in January 2024 for updated funding cycle dates.

Please review the funding overview below to ensure your organization is eligible for funding by MHA.


MHA’s Funding Priorities

Please ensure your project falls into one of our priority issue areas. These include:

  1. Healthcare access to primary care including supply, financial resources, capacity, care, and resource navigation

  2. Diabetes and Nutritional Health

  3. Health Screenings and Prevention that are tied to primary care

  4. Behavioral Health

  5. Dental and Vision Health 

MHA’s Values

We believe that health encompasses physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or illness. We also place a high value on the following:

  1. Collaboration and partnership

  2. Measurable impact and results

  3. Evidence-based models

  4. Stewardship, accountability, efficient use of resources, and fiduciary responsibility

  5. Prevention and detection


Other Considerations

  1. Applicants must have been classified by the IRS as a tax-exempt nonprofit 501(c)3 organization for at least three (3) years.

  2. MHA can fund community programs offered by religious organizations or an ISD.

  3. Proposals can be considered for capacity building, existing programs, program expansion, new initiatives, and new innovative solutions; at this time capital projects, endowment, and research will not be considered.

  4. If an organization is not funded during a cycle, there is no waiting time to reapply for funding. If an organization is funded one year, it may reapply the next year for additional funding.  

Evaluation and Reporting

Metrocrest Hospital Authority values measurable impact and results. Tracking and evaluating the impact of our funding is a critical part of our process. We strive to understand the effects of our investments within our community. We require reporting on the results of the project or program funded by MHA. Outcomes achieved should be tied directly to the goals outlined in the original application. Additionally, MHA requires documentation that explains goals and achievement of impact. Final reports are due as scheduled in the fund agreement.


We place a high value on developing partnerships with nonprofit organizations

to enhance the quality of life for residents of the Metrocrest service area,

particularly Carrollton and Farmers Branch.
