Grants

The Paso del Norte Health Foundation has emphasized that it takes more than one individual or organization to bring about change. The achievements in improving health and quality of life have come through unified focus and the dedication of hundreds of partnering regional nonprofit organizations and institutions.

The intent of this section is for the Foundation to communicate and provide the needed information that could be useful to grantees, future grant seekers, and the community on how the Foundation works to improve the health of the region, now and into the future.
