North Carolina Community-Centered Health Planning Grants
Application: May 18, 2018
The Community-Centered Health initiative will provide planning grants for North Carolina communities to develop the capacity of local multi-sector collaborations to improve health, particularly for populations that experience the greatest disparities. The primary focus is to support community collaborations that feature clinical-community partnerships and active involvement of community members in addressing social determinants of health.
The applicant organization must be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) or government entity that is expected to serve as the "backbone" of a multi-sector collaboration in which there is distributed leadership including the active participation of resident leaders and representatives from communities most impacted by health disparities. Partnerships must also include a healthcare organization, such as a hospital or health system, Federally Qualified Health Center, rural health center, or other mission-oriented provider.
Multiple collaborations will be selected to receive grants in the amount of $100,000 to support a planning period of 15 months, after which grantees will be eligible to apply for a multi-year implementation grant.
In addition to funding, awardees will receive:
- Technical assistance through coaching calls and on-site visits
- Invitations to training opportunities
- Peer support
- Access to up to $10,000 each year to attend relevant conferences and training programs
