Improving Health in New Mexico.
Con Alma Health Foundation invites nonprofits that improve health in New Mexico to apply for grants to support their work. Con Alma, the state’s largest private foundation dedicated solely to health, opened its grant cycle, which includes small grants of up to $15,000 and technical assistance grants up to $10,000.
Con Alma awards grants annually to nonprofits throughout New Mexico that work toward sustainable solutions to their communities’ health challenges. Nonprofits can apply for grants starting April 9 through May 30. Last year Con Alma awarded $625,000 to nonprofits working toward a healthier New Mexico.
In a separate grant cycle, Con Alma and the Hospital Auxiliary for Los Alamos Medical Center, working together as the Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group, are accepting grant applications for nonprofits that serve Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and northern Santa Fe counties. Grants up to $15,000 are intended to address unmet health needs in the tri-county area.
Most of the proposals we receive are worthy of receiving funding. We base our final decisions on ensuring broad representation of our cultures, regions and issues affecting our state. - Dolores E. Roybal, Executive Director.

The statewide foundation places a special focus on supporting culturally diverse, rural and tribal communities, as well as the uninsured and underserved. Since its inception, Con Alma has invested more than $14 million in nonprofits’ improving health in New Mexico.
