N2N awards grants on a quarterly basis, but nonprofits are only eligible for funding once per calendar year. The deadlines for submitting applications are Jan. 15, Apr. 15, July 15, and Oct. 15, 2018.

Pacific Hospital Preservation & Development Authority – Nimble Fund
Nonprofits that improve healthcare access for underserved communities can apply for up to $30,000 for short-term projects, infrastructure/capacity development, planning, technology improvement, training, or policy and advocacy work. Funding may be used as a bridge to support staff salaries during the project year only if there is a clear plan for ongoing future funding. You can submit an application for PHPDA’s Nimble Grant Fund at any time, however projects that need to be funded for the spring must be submitted by Feb. 16, 2018 at noon. See the Applying for Nimble Grants page for details.
