2024 Grant Program


Pima County's 2021 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) identified mental/behavioral health and substance use disorders as health priorities in our community. In response, Tucson Osteopathic Medical Foundation (TOMF) has once again chosen those priority areas as the target for our 2024 grants program. TOMF will award a maximum of $25,000 in grant funding to 501c3 organizations in Pima County whose missions, programs, and/or projects aim to achieve meaningful advancements in one or both of the priority areas.


Applicants must be 501c3 organizations in Pima County whose missions, programs, and/or projects aim to achieve meaningful advancements in mental/behavioral health AND/OR substance use disorders in our community.

A maximum of $25,000 will be awarded during this award cycle. Grant funds may be used to support direct program expenses but cannot be used for program staffing expenses like salaries or benefits.
