The Community Mini-Grant program provides funding to develop, implement, and evaluate evidence-based or evidence-informed health outreach projects to reduce health disparities in rural and Appalachian communities in Kentucky.

Priority areas include:

  • Cancer prevention, including nutrition, physical activity, and smoking cessation
  • Reduction of obesity
  • Supporting healthy lifestyle
  • Chronic disease prevention or management, including for diabetes and cardiovascular disease

Community agencies and coalitions with 501(c)(3) status are eligible to apply. Health agencies and nonprofit organizations may serve as a designated lead fiscal agency.
