Blue & You Foundation Arkansas

Regular Grants Program:
The Blue & You Foundation has an online application process for its regular grants of $5,000 to $150,000, with a July 15 application deadline. (The information required in the online application is shown in the Grant Guidelines section.) All regular grant applications are held until after the July 15 deadline, so there is no advantage to applying early. Go to online application.

Mini-Grant Program:
In addition to its regular grants program outlined on this site, the Blue & You Foundation offers a simpler application for $1,000 mini-grants to support health-improvement projects in Arkansas. (See Grant Guidelines for eligibility criteria.) While any health-related activity is eligible, the Foundation also is receptive to receiving applications to fund the purchase of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) [pdf] and related user training. Applications for mini-grants will be accepted in the months of January, February and March. You may receive only one mini-grant in a 12-month period, and any organization that has received a mini-grant or regular grant from the Blue & You Foundation in the last two years is not eligible to apply for a mini-grant. You will be notified of mini-grant awards within approximately 10 days of your application. If you receive a $1,000 mini-grant, you will be asked to submit a one-page report of your program results within six months. Go to online application.


The Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas is a charitable foundation established and funded by Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield to promote better health in Arkansas.

The Foundation anticipates awarding approximately $2 million in grants annually to non-profit or governmental organizations and programs that positively affect the health of Arkansans. Particular emphasis will be given to projects affecting health-care delivery, health-care policy and health-care economics.

The poor health status of Arkansans contributes to rising medical costs. By providing funding and working together with other organizations, the Foundation hopes to establish or expand a number of diverse health-care projects that will benefit all Arkansans over the long term.

The Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and serves the state of Arkansas. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization.
