Areas of Interest:
The Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation cultivates nurse leaders, supports nursing research and innovations, and disseminates new models of care to help transform our healthcare system into one that is more patient-centered, accessible, equitable, and affordable, and one that delivers the high-quality care patients need and deserve.

The Hillman Innovations in Care Program is intended to develop and disseminate new models of healthcare delivery that are rooted in nursing's holistic approach to care.
The goal of the program is to advance leading-edge, nursing-driven models of care that will improve the health and healthcare of vulnerable populations, including the economically disadvantaged, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBQT, the homeless, rural populations, and other groups that encounter barriers to accessing healthcare services.

The Foundation specifically seeks proposals that address the healthcare needs of vulnerable populations in the following areas:

  • Maternal and Child Health;
  • Care of the Older Adult; and,
  • Chronic Illness Management.

Support is provided for two types of proposals:

  • the adaptation of proven, well-established nursing-driven models to new or expanded settings or patient populations; and,
  • the expansion of emerging nursing-driven models with early evidence suggesting a strong likelihood for achieving Triple Aim-like outcomes on a broad scale.

Priority consideration is given to proposals that include one or more of the following:

  • engagement of patients, families, caregivers, and community organizations
  • health and wellness promotion and disease prevention
  • inter-professional or multidisciplinary collaboration;
  • institutional and community partnerships; and,
  • provision of care in non-hospital settings.

Grants are not provided to/for:

  • white papers, literature reviews, or support for publishing;
  • basic science or research; or,
  • the development of stand-alone technology including medical devices and mobile apps not integral to the overall design of the program.

The Foundation will make two grants annually up to a maximum of $600,000.

Application Procedures:
Application guidelines are available on the Foundation's website when the Requests for Proposals are issued.
