About the Health Care Gap Fund Grant Program

WWIN offers Health Care Gap Fund Grants that cover the costs of the following services for women who have Apple Health or Medicare insurance coverage:

  • Dental crowns and bridges, and root canals on permanent bicuspid and molar teeth
  • Glasses and contact lenses
  • In some cases, health care provider access issues, for reasons such as availability, geography, or language barriers

Eligibility

WWIN selects grantees who are ready for transformational life change. Our grantees are determined and driven and have a deep desire to build a better future for themselves and their families. They are prepared to work towards improved health, sparking positive change for themselves, their families, and communities for generations to come.

In addition to being ready to transform their lives, applicants must meet all of WWIN’s eligibility criteria and submit all required documentation to be considered.

Selection Process

Our Grantees are selected by a competitive grant selection process. This means that our reviewers read through each and every application to select Grantees who best align with the values shared above. Our reviewers focus primarily on answers to the essay questions about you and the future you want to create for yourself. So please be as thoughtful, honest, and thorough as possible when completing the application.

WWIN will make Health Care Gap Fund Grants on a monthly basis. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applications and all required documentation must be submitted by 11:59 pm on the last day of the month to be considered for the following month’s grant awards. We will notify all applicants by e-mail of their application status by the end of the month following receipt of their complete application. Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to answer calls or e-mails about an individual’s application status.

Applying Online

Applicants must complete the online Health Care Gap Fund Grant application form to be considered. The “Apply” button below will take you to the online form, which will ask you for information about you, your needs, and your circumstances. You will have the ability to partially complete the application and return to it later.

No e-mailed, faxed, or mailed application forms will be considered. However, you may e-mail, fax, or mail supporting documentation.
