The Health Fund for Frederick County Youth
Grants from this fund support nonprofits providing services to Frederick County youth under age 18 who have extraordinary and/or life-threatening medical needs. Grant requests may include, but are not limited to, medical procedures, special equipment needs, or medical expenses not reimbursed or covered through health insurance. A letter from the youth's current medical practitioner certifying that the medical need is indeed extraordinary and/or life threatening must be submitted, along with the current diagnosis, as part of the application. Grants will not be paid directly to families or individuals, but directly to vendors and/or medical providers.
