Funds for Safety

We’re Proud To Provide Funding For Innovative Safety Initiatives.

The 2021 Funds for Safety grant program application period is open! Completed grant applications must be received on March 3, 2021. Submissions will be scored by independent reviewers and grants will be awarded on April 16, 2021.

What is the Funds For Safety program?

Funds for Safety is a safety grant program sponsored by LHA Trust Funds. Each year, we award up to $300,000 in grant funding for initiatives to improve patient safety. The objective of the program is to encourage and support member efforts in the development and implementation of patient safety and quality initiatives developed in a collaborative process with a Physician Champion. Grants will be awarded for projects that are expected to improve quality, reduce patient harm and/or improve patient outcomes for members of the Louisiana Hospital Association Malpractice and General Liability Trust Fund.

Your facility must be a member of the Louisiana Hospital Association Malpractice and General Liability Trust Fund to be eligible for a grant. Facilities may submit multiple applications for grants, but can only receive a total of $25,000 for all submissions combined.

Projects must include a budget for the proposed project, and grant monies that are awarded shall be paid as they are expended or at the completion of the project. Grant funds can be used to compensate physicians participating in the project and for reimbursement of related expenses.
