Finding Funding Opportunities
Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County (HHC) is responsible for coordinating the development of private foundation and federal, state, and local government agency grant proposals and grant awards within HHC, including the Marion County Public Health Department, Eskenazi Health, Eskenazi Health Center, Sandra Eskenazi Mental Health Center, Long-Term Care, and Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services. The HHC Grants Department works with program leaders to find and distribute information about funding opportunities.

Preparing Proposals
Prior to drafting a grant proposal, program staff must submit a signed Intent to Apply form with appropriate approvals. Once approved, submit to the Grants Department at

The Grants Department will assign a grant writer to guide the application review process and a Post Award team member to develop a budget. The Grants Team will complete other forms as required by the proposal.

The Grants Department will submit the proposal on behalf of HHC, including any online portal requirements, to ensure all corporation information is accurate and all required information is provided. No proposal should be submitted without the consent of the Vice President of Grants or the Eskenazi Health Foundation.

Receiving & Managing Awards
In addition to preparing grant applications, the Grants Department fiscally oversees the corporation’s grants, including HHC’s direct federal and federal pass-through grant funds. The Grants Department works with sub-awardees and contractors to ensure that federal award dollars granted to sub-awardees and contractors are used for authorized purposes in compliance with laws, regulations, and provisions of contract or grant agreements. Finally, the Grants Department works closely with HHC’s Finance Department for all fiscal audits, including the annual Single Audit.

The Post Award grants team works with the Finance Departments at HHC and Eskenazi to ensure invoices are processed and financial reports are submitted. The principal investigator/project director should complete and submit technical and progress reports. A copy should be provided to the Grants Department upon or after submission. Upon receipt of grant award, the grants Department should be notified at
