The Missouri Foundation for Health will provide grants to engage stakeholders in Missouri in planning, preparing, and building support for firearm injury and death prevention efforts.

Preference will be given to applications that propose to engage populations that have not been or minimally involved in or served by firearm injury and death prevention (FID) efforts. Examples include, but are not limited to, addressing community violence in rural areas, firearm-related domestic violence efforts, understanding impacts of FID on immigrant populations, and addressing firearm suicide prevention in Black or Latino populations.

Activities include:

  • Identifying and engaging key partners and community members
  • Supporting opportunities to build knowledge and awareness among key players
  • Implementing planning activities to better understand the impact of FID on the community and for identifying potential solutions and next steps
  • Engaging in strategic planning with community
  • Developing and/or maintaining community collaborations and/or coalitions to address FID
  • Supporting a wide range of asset and capacity building and organizational resiliency activities to assist organizations and communities in their efforts to begin to address FID
  • Identifying and designing mechanisms to engage and center community when developing interventions and promote a culture of power sharing with those most impacted by the topic area
  • Informing future FID efforts with the learning from these projects
  • Designing communication strategies and approaches

Applicants must be 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations, government entities, and nonprofit organizations with a fiscal sponsor.
