Partnerships for Health Care

EPHT supports nonprofit organizations that provide valuable services to underinsured and uninsured patients in St. Louis. The Trust awards responsive grants to area nonprofits seeking critical dollars in the following areas.

  • Primary care – pediatric and general medicine
    • Direct services
    • Health screenings
    • Immunizations
    • Health education
  • Access to physician specialists (e.g., orthopedics, cardiology, etc.) and other medical services (home health, hospice, physical therapy, etc)
  • Inpatient and outpatient hospital care
  • Mental health
    • Direct services
    • Substance abuse including opioid use
  • Dentistry

EPHT focuses its grant making on serving those living in poverty, including children, adults, older adults, people whose first language is not English, people with disabilities, and those living in neighborhoods of poverty.  Funding is restricted to nonprofits serving people in the Metro St. Louis area.  EPHT’s priority focus is on organizations and programs working in the City of St. Louis and close-in suburbs; however, if an organization in the six-county Metro region meets all other criteria – falls within the identified areas for funding and serves a high percentage of people living in poverty – the Trustees may consider the grant application.
