Purpose

The Culture of Health Prize is awarded to honor collaborative, community-based efforts that are prioritizing health and empowering people in the community to live healthier lives, especially historically marginalized populations and those facing the greatest barriers to good health.

Awards will honor entire communities, not single organizations or initiatives. The prize is intended to shine a light on communities that have created powerful partnerships and deep commitments to make changes that will lead to longer, healthier lives for community members.

Criteria for determining Culture of Health Prize winners can be found on the program website.

To be eligible to apply for a prize, a community must be based in the United States and fall into one of the following categories:

  • Federally recognized tribe or a state-designated Indian reservation
  • Native Hawaiian organization serving and representing the interests of Native Hawaiians in Hawaii
  • Region defined as geographically contiguous municipalities, counties, and/or reservations
  • Communities within U.S. territories

Each applicant community will be required to designate a local governmental or tax-exempt public charity operating within its community to accept the prize.
