AHEI is the recipient of $3000, which is the balance from the AMA Alliance Alcohol Awareness Grants made possible by The Smithers Foundation when it honored AMA Past President J. Edward Hill. Dr Hill courageously led the AMA to speak out about underage alcohol abuse. We are indebted to Dr. Hill for sharing these funds with the Alliance and AHEI.

Other AHEI grants will be awarded to organized AMA Alliance state and county component Alliances and other health-related civic and charitable organizations.  If the applicant is an Alliance, please note that leadership for the project must be provided by Alliance members and collaboration with other community groups is strongly encouraged.

Grants for the upcoming fiscal year will be accepted January 1 through February 28, 2017 and will be awarded by May 1, 2017. Please submit completed applications by mail using the AHEI Grant Request Form, attaching additional information as requested. Be advised that applications must be postmarked by February 28, 2017.
