5 The health priorities of the REACH Foundation remain unchanged – oral health, mental health and safety net health care. The theory of change (TOC) serves as our guide to how and where we make investments in nonprofit organizations. The strategies in the TOC are our first funding priority. In addition, the foundation is encouraging innovation in our program grants through new opportunities: 1. Additional emphasis and preference for three specific strategies:  Expansion of health care access points  Expansion of the number and diversity of health providers, health navigators and mental health engagement specialists  Collaboration/partnerships to address complex healthcare issues 2. Encouraging Innovation:  Propose new strategies not explicitly identified in the REACH TOC but are responsive to one or more barriers identified in the REACH TOC FUNDING PRIORITIES 8/15/20135

Once grants are awarded:  Key indicators and associated metrics will be collaboratively selected  REACH will suggest one impact and one outcome indicator to be measured by grantees  Informed by long-term partners *For more information on the theory of change, visit our website at MEASURING PROGRESS 8/15/201311

17 8/15/ Does the Foundation allocate its funds by county or funding priority? Answer: No. But we work to ensure our resources are addressing needs across our service area and interest areas/priorities. The Foundation continues to invest in each of the six counties in our service area through a variety of investment approaches including initiatives, core operating grants, discretionary grants, and program grants. Can I apply for more than one grant during the year? Answer: Yes. There are no limits on grant applications. However, because we receive more proposals than we can fund, we encourage organizations to focus on those programs that have the greatest potential to increase access to health care services for the poor and medically underserved or improve the quality of care received by the target population(s). My organization was previously declined for funding. Can we apply again? Answer: Yes. But please review the reasons your proposal was declined before submitting a new request. If you are not clear why you were declined, contact a program officer for feedback. Must we address one of the 2014 competitive priorities? Answer: No. But you must propose to implement at least one of the strategies in the TOC or in the case of the Innovation Competitive Priority address one of the barriers through a new strategy. Can we address more than 1 of the competitive priorities? Answer: Not at this time. Speak to a program officer if you have questions about this. FAQs
