Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and government entities, including schools, IHEs, hospitals, and tribal governments to support research, programs, and projects that promote health equity and improve health outcomes. A letter of interest must be submitted before a full application. Funding is intended to support action-oriented research, demonstration projects, and programs to build the evidence base needed to promote health equity and reduce disparities in healthcare access, quality, and outcomes amongst populations facing the greatest needs, particularly communities of color.

Funded proposals will develop, test, and/or scale strategies and interventions that reduce disparities and promote health equity. Successful proposals will also support health systems and hospitals, practitioners, advocates, community leaders, patients and caregivers, and decision-makers in setting priorities and allocating resources towards solutions that improve the health and wellbeing of historically underserved patients within Genentech’s disease areas of focus. 

The CGN focuses on two aims: 1) advancing inclusive research; 2) promoting equity in care. For more information, see https://www.gene.com/assets/frontend/pdf/content/good/grants/2020_Health_Equity_Innovations_Fund_CGN.pdf#page=2.
