Helping qualifying groups capture funding to improve the health of people in their communities.


Through MoCAP, we:

  • Communicate with organizations about federal and national funding opportunities

  • Offer free grant-writing services and technical assistance for specific grant opportunities

Since 2010, we’ve supported more than 780 proposals, with an overall return on investment of $44 per $1 we put into the program. To date, over $356 million has been captured for Missouri organizations.

We assist a variety of organizations with diverse areas of focus, including community health centers, local public health agencies, local nonprofits, and state agencies.


Why it matters.

MoCAP offers technical support and consulting services free of charge to eligible organizations pursuing federal or national funding for health- or prevention-focused programs. MoCAP resources are available to nonprofits and governmental organizations that serve people or communities within our service region. An organization’s current or prior status as an MFH grantee has no bearing on using MoCAP services.

Accessing MoCAP Assistance

If your organization has not previously worked with MoCAP, regardless if there is a current funding opportunity open, complete the MoCAP potential customer worksheet. Once completed, a MoCAP staff member will contact you to schedule a phone call. If you have found a specific grant opportunity and determined that your organization meets eligibility requirements set forth in the announcement, e-mail your name, phone number, agency/organization, link to the funding opportunity, and a concept paper to MoCAP staff will contact you within two business days.
