U.S.-based nonprofit organizations engaged in charitable work at the community level in the United States in support of the program’s mission

The AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation will hold an open call for applications for the CCH Next Generation program from February 3 to February 21, 2020 at 5 p.m. ETCCH Next Generation will maintain CCH's original mission to improve cardiovascular health in the US and many of the same criteria for funding and programs. What’s new is the focus on sharing nearly 10 years of Foundation and Grant Awardee learnings from the field so new applicants have the opportunity to modify or adapt these learnings when designing and implementing their own innovative, community-based heart health programs. 

Register here for a webinar on January 16, 2020 at 3 p.m. ET to learn more about the open call for applications.

CCH Next Generation grants in the amount of $125,000 to $150,000 will be awarded to organizations that have never been funded before by the Foundation through the CCH program. CCH Next Generation welcomes applications from every state in the nation and has a preference for funding applications from the top 20 states by cardiovascular disease mortality (see detailed criteria). Additional preference will be given to applications from those states where the Foundation has never previously funded a program. CCH will provide limited grant funding to several previously-funded organizations to serve as mentors to newly-funded organizations, support program sustainability and share lessons learned.

Through evaluating results from community-based programs from CCH, the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation and its evaluation partners have identified six innovative approaches commonly used to improve cardiovascular health at the community level. Applying organizations will need to align with one of six innovative approaches as the basis of their CCH Next Generation program or identify their own innovative approach. The six innovative approaches include:

  • Leveraging access for uninsured and underserved participants to improve cardiovascular knowledge and health
  • Bringing programs to participants
  • Educating children to serve as heart health ambassadors
  • Improving cardiovascular health through food-based programs
  • Using health coaches/promotores to improve cardiovascular health
  • Providing culturally sensitive program interventions to maximize participant outcomes

Applicants are encouraged to consult the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation’s Effective Program Practices Guide to help them when designing their own community-based cardiovascular programs.

To qualify for a Foundation Program Grant, nonprofit organizations based in the United States must be engaged in charitable work (at the community level or otherwise) that addresses the Foundation’s Connections for Cardiovascular Health℠ (CCH) mission and meets five key criteria:

  • Addresses cardiovascular health issues within the United States and its territories
  • Recognizes and works to address an unmet need related to cardiovascular health in the community
  • Responds to the urgency around addressing cardiovascular health issues, including cardiovascular disease or conditions contributing to cardiovascular disease
  • Improves the quality of participants’ and non-professional caregivers’ lives in connection with the services provided and work done
  • Demonstrates a clear plan for long-term program sustainability, to further improve cardiovascular health after Foundation grants are expended.

Foundation grant applications that meet the criteria and describe innovative programs with clearly defined outcomes and measurable results and processes will be considered for funding.

Review the detailed program criteria.

Organizations whose applications are selected for funding will be asked to review and approve a Letter of Agreement that will include specific, periodic reporting requirements for the duration of the program.

Note that due to the historically large number of funding requests, not all applications that meet Foundation criteria will receive funding.
