The Quantum Foundation is seeking proposals for projects designed to improve the community health of the Northwest, Coleman Park, Pleasant City, Northwood Hills, Pinewood Park, and North 45th Street communities of West Palm Beach.
Community organizations providing supports and services focused on the social determinants of health: the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These determinants include various factors such as socioeconomic status, education, neighborhood environment, access to healthcare, social support networks, and the ability to engage in healthy behaviors. They play a significant role in influencing individual and community health outcomes, as they can either promote health and well-being or contribute to health disparities and inequities.
Projects that are collaborative in nature, innovative in design, and have the potential for significant, measurable, and sustained impact will be at an advantage in seeking Quantum Foundation funding. Funding is available to support projects for one year. There is the possibility of additional funding for projects that are successful.
