Grants of up to $75,000 to Rhode Island nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that increase access to safe and affordable housing. Funding is intended to enhance health outcomes for residents through stable housing and to reduce healthcare costs, especially for underserved and low-income communities.

Through the BlueAngel Community Health Grant program, the funding source aims to:

  • Fund organizations and programs that will result in more Rhode Islanders being able to afford safe, healthy and stable housing.
  • Increase awareness about safe, affordable housing as a shared public concern, underscoring why housing matters and its connection to overall health.
  • Highlight solutions and amplify effective models to support access to safe and affordable housing by funding proven and replicable local- and state-level initiatives, with an emphasis on collaborations across different sectors.

Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no maximum or minimum grant amount. Historically, funding amounts have ranged from $25,000 per year to $75,000 per year.

Term of Contract:

Blue Cross is not currently making multiyear grant awards. However, applicants who receive funding may apply for second-year transitional funding.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Organizations are eligible for grants from Blue Cross if they have qualified for exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code or are public instrumentalities (e.g., a government entity). Grants are not awarded to individuals. Private foundations [as defined by Section 509(a) of the Code] are not eligible for funding.

An organization may not apply for more than one BlueAngel Community Health grant during the year. Applicants who receive a grant may not submit another letter of intent or proposal for funding the same program within the same year. Applicants who are not approved for funding are welcome to reapply in the next grant cycle.

Blue Cross typically does not fund construction (e.g., bricks and mortar).

Blue Cross will not fund projects or programs of fraternal or religious organizations where the primary beneficiaries are members of these organizations. They also do not contribute to organizations seeking contributions for advertising space, tickets, or sponsorship of dinners, fundraising events, or promotional materials. Additionally, the BACHG program does not fund requests from hospitals.
