Federal funding (public funds from taxes) is used to develop and implement programs operated at the federal, state, and local levels. In addition to funding public programs and organizations, hospitals and schools also receive public funds to cover daily operations costs because they directly help local communities (Fertman, & Allensworth, 2017). One example of a publicly funded intervention might be an exercise program initiated in schools to reduce obesity in children. Another example of public funding comes from grants issued by the government. Government grants are typically provided to address a particular public concern. Therefore the organizations wanting those funds must prove that their programs address the problem (Fertman, & Allensworth, 2017). Another federally funded health program is Medicare. Medicare is health insurance covering people aged 65 years and older, people with disabilities, and other chronic, life-threatening diseases (Medicare.gov, n.d.).
In contrast, private funding is provided by individuals, companies, organizations, and foundations. These groups give money to promote such things as research, education, cultural, and scientific endeavors. Foundations can be public, using multiple sources for funding, or private, using one source. One example of an intervention using private financing is the de Beaumont Foundation. An individual founded this organization to provide relief to those who were suffering and continues to develop public health programs as a non-profit organization (de Beaumont, 2019).
