The CareSource Foundation Grant Challenge will award a total of $400,000 to Florida community-based organizations and nonprofits focused on demonstrating effective, practical solutions to address the needs of children and youth in medically complex care.

CareSource is a nonprofit, nationally recognized managed care organization that administers one of the fastest-growing Medicaid managed care plans in the country. Florida is the fourth state where the CareSource Foundation Grant Challenge will take place.

Since 2006, the CareSource Foundation has awarded more than $28.5 million to nonprofits across the country that are working to eliminate poverty, provide much-needed services to low-and moderate-income families, and develop innovative approaches to address critical health issues. “Medically complex” is a term used when a child has a medical condition that requires ongoing specialized care, according to Children First. The medical condition can vary from rare illnesses to premature birth, in addition to some incidents involving an occurrence of physical trauma. These conditions are typically functionally limiting and, in some cases, life-threatening.

The state-specific competition invites the community to nominate and vote for nonprofits. Organizations are encouraged to rally their supporters for votes to increase their chances of winning. Nominations are open for organizations located in Northeast, Central and Gulf Coast, Florida Feb. 9 – March 9.
