Intermountain Healing Hearts (IHH)
provides support for families of children and adults with congenital
heart defects and childhood onset heart disease. In addition to the
emotional and physical support provided by the organization the IHH
Family Heart Grant offers financial support to assist families with
some of the monetary challenges associated with heart disease. Grants
are for those seeking monetary aid for medical services received from September 1st, of the previous year to August 31st,
