ACT on Health Equity Community Solutions Challenge initiative provides funding to nonprofit organizations carrying out regional and/or local community-based programs that address health disparities among underserved populations. Grants are made under 4 categories:

  1. Nutrition programs that address nutrition as a social determinant of health, including reducing food insecurity and providing comprehensive nutritional education to improve health outcomes.
  2. Healthcare Access programs that improve access to quality healthcare by addressing barriers, including health education, access to preventive screenings, and transportation services
  3. STEM Education programs that enhance educational and career readiness opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) for underserved communities
  4. Oncology programs that advance cancer care for underserved communities, including access to screenings, treatment, and personalized care for people with cancer, caregivers and loved ones

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