This program sponsors community-based organizations, health departments, and other low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, state, and national conferences related to connecting New York residents with healthy food, empowering healthcare consumers, and meeting the needs of returning veterans and their families.

The most qualified proposals will demonstrate:

  • That conference subject matter, sessions, or speakers relate to NYSHealth's work in connecting New York residents with healthy food, empowering health care consumers, or meeting the needs of returning veterans and their families
  • That conference attendance for the organization may shape current work, raise professional awareness, set the stage for future work, or build the field
  • That the conference agenda, sessions, and speakers are relevant to the organization's work
  • Why the specific conference is cost-prohibitive to the organization and why NYSHealth funding is needed

Eligible applicants include health departments, government agencies, community-based organizations, nonprofits, and other low-resource organizations in New York.
