MMA Foundation Grants

Community Health & Physician Engagement Innovation Grants

The MMA Foundation’s Community Health & Physician Engagement Innovation Grants program will support projects, programs, or activities that advance health and health equity and engage physicians who live in regions of Minnesota without an active component medical society (designated as At-Large). Physicians who live in a region where the component medical society has initiated the dissolution process (e.g., Prairie Medical Society) are also eligible.

Letters of inquiry are due July 14, 2020. If invited, final proposals are due August 4, 2020.  All funding decisions will be made by August 14, 2020.

The MMA Foundation has $9,000 available for awards in 2020. The MMA Foundation expects to award four or five grants in 2020.  

Funding preference will be given to projects, programs, or activities that are physician-championed and demonstrate the potential to engage physicians in support of evidence-based efforts to advance health and health equity.

Examples of potential projects include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Projects to advance health access and health equity
  • Vaccine promotion
  • Firearm injury prevention
  • Suicide prevention
  • Projects that address loneliness or belonging
  • Projects to reduce infant mortality
