PHA is an organization empowered by hope. Our efforts are advanced by the willingness of those in our community to share their talents and ideas.

Through this program, PHA seeks to create new opportunities for those in the PH community to try out new ideas that hold the promise of more rapidly advancing our common cause. Ideas might include, but are not limited to, increased public awareness, education, resource development, advocacy or other initiatives bringing common benefit.


Each grant will be funded for a maximum of $5,000 in 2016. 

Projects should focus on:

  • Researching and developing innovative ways to raise awareness and foster service to the PH community;
  • Extending the reach of an existing program that provides services to the PH community; or
  • Reproducing an existing program that provides services to the PH community in another geographical region or area to address unmet needs.
