Health Impact Project
The Health Impact Project provides grants to support the use of health impact assessment to improve local health outcomes and to build the capacity of organizations to conduct health impact assessments to bring both health evidence and community voice to decisions made in sectors outside of healthcare.
This opportunity is focused on addressing the social and economic factors that contribute to health, including education, employment, family and social support, and community safety. These factors can be affected by decisions in a range of sectors, such as housing, transportation, criminal justice, community development, and others.
Eligible applicant organizations include:
- State, tribal, or local agencies
- Tax-exempt educational institutions
- Tax-exempt organizations described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
Applicants must be located in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, or West Virginia.
Previous health impact assessment experience is not necessary, though it is strongly encouraged that at least one person on the team has an understanding of public health.
