Community Program Fund

The Deaconess Henderson Hospital (DHH) Community Program Fund is a result of the merger of Methodist Hospital and the Deaconess Health System.  At the time of the merger funds were approved to be used every year to promote the health and well-being of the citizens of Henderson County, Kentucky.

The DHH Community Program Committee will accept grant proposals from all interested non-profit organizations serving Henderson County, Kentucky.  Grant opening dates, deadlines, and guidelines for submission will be communicated via email, letter, and through local media.  Final approval for awards will be made by the DHH Advisory Board.

For this inaugural year, the grant application window will run from April 15 to May 30. Winners will be announced in June, 2023.

Grant monies will go to those organizations addressing the areas identified in the current Henderson County Community Health Needs Assessment.
