Metrocrest Hospital Authority Seeks Local Projects to Fund

2023 Community Health Needs Assessment revealed areas of healthcare to focus on

Metrocrest Hospital Authority (MHA) is seeking to fund local projects in areas of maternal health, dental prevention and education, or healthcare for individuals with special needs. Project programming must fall within the Metrocrest service area of Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Coppell, and Addison.

“Last year’s Community Health Needs Assessment revealed maternal health, dental prevention and education, and other areas of need in our community,” said Metrocrest Hospital Authority CEO John Mahalik. “We learned a lot from conducting the CHNA and we’re using that data collected to focus funding projects that fill these needs.”

Projects must fall into one of the following priority issue areas:

  1. Healthcare access to primary care including supply, financial resources, capacity, care, and resource navigation
  2. Diabetes and Nutritional Health
  3. Health Screenings and Prevention that are tied to primary care
  4. Behavioral Health
  5. Dental and Vision Health 

To be considered, organizations must fill out a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) on The Dallas Foundation’s online portal by Monday, March 27, 2023.
