ACT on Health Equity Community Solutions Challenge initiative provides funding to nonprofit organizations carrying out regional and/or local community-based programs that positively impact the health of underserved populations. Grants are made under two categories:

  1. Community health and well-being programs that prioritize the social, cultural, and linguistic needs of underserved patients, caregivers and families and improve conditions that affect health and well-being, such as housing, education, safety, nutrition, and access to care. Programs that address health disparities among historically excluded and disenfranchised populations and prioritize their social, cultural, and linguistic needs.
  2. Youth STEM education and career readiness programs that build knowledge and skills in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields among K-12 or undergraduate students

501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations delivering regional and local community-based programming are eligible to apply, including local chapters of national organizations.

While not a requirement, special consideration will be given to programs that reach AstraZeneca footprint geographies (California, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington).
