Rosalia and LaCrosse receive grants


LaCrosse — LaCrosse and Rosalia received grants for several projects, including LaCrosse Park and Recreation, LaCrosse Community Outreach, and Rosalia Volunteer Firefighters Association.

LaCrosse Park and Recreation received $8,955 for a main pump replacement at the City Pool, LaCrosse Community Outreach received $10,000, and Rosalia Volunteer Firefighters Association received $10,000 for their Training Mannequin Project.

Executive Vice President and Chief Wealth Management Officer of Idaho Trust Bank Trustee of the Foundation Desiree Prohaska stated that they have been helping meet needs by awarding $183,865.90 in Fast-Track small grants to 24 area organizations during its first round of Fast Track Grants.

“We really appreciate all of the hard work of the Foundation’s Board of Community Advisors, who reviewed the Fast-Track grant applications and made grant award recommendations to the Trustee,” Prohaska said.

The Fast-Track small grant is a quick turnaround for small nonprofits focusing on health, wellness, or disease prevention.

Amongst the Fast-Track Small Grant recipients approved in April, nonprofit organizations and government agencies from 14 cities in the three-state area received grants.

The requests varied from replacing a new Stoke Basket (Stretcher) to a new Weight and Strength Training Facility.

The Foundation’s more significant Impact Grant season will open on June 1, 2023, and is due July 31.

Applications can be found on the website at this date for requests up to $100,000, with priority given to those that demonstrate a commitment to long-term vision and projects that address the root causes affecting health, improve wellness, and help prevent disease.

Review and awards of Fast-Track grant applications happen monthly.

The Fast-Track grant application deadline this year is May 31, 2023.

Established in 2017 by Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, the Lewis-Clark Valley Healthcare Foundation funds grants to promote the health, wellness, or disease prevention of persons in the Foundation’s three-state, nine-county service area, including Clearwater, Idaho, Latah, Lewis, and Nez Perce in Idaho; Asotin, Garfield, and Whitman in Washington; and Wallowa in Oregon.
