National Grants

Our national grants support research, programs and policy analysis that have implications to improve people’s health, wellness and access to high-quality health care across the United States.

The Aetna Foundation currently does not accept unsolicited proposals for our National Grants Program. Instead, we work directly with targeted nonprofit organizations to develop projects. On occasion we issue specific Requests for Proposals for work that closely aligns with our funding priorities.

Awards are generally between $50,000 and $150,000. Funded projects are not to exceed a two-year timeline.
