Small Grants Fund 


The Harris County Hospital District Foundation channels the generosity of Harris County philanthropists and Harris Health System employees through our Small Grants Fund.  Grants are awarded quarterly to fund Harris Health System short-term projects. These grants are reviewed and awarded by the Foundation Small Grants Committee and the Employee Contribution Small Grants Committee.  All Harris Health pavilions, clinics and departments are eligible to apply.  The application must be signed by the corresponding Harris Health System administrator.  The maximum amount awarded is $5,000.  If you have a project that exceeds the $5,000 limit, please contact our office to discuss other funding opportunities.
