Priority will be given to projects that serve populations with inequitable access to health-promoting resources and services, including those in poverty, rural communities, LGBTQ+ groups, indigenous communities, racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, refugees, and other groups experiencing health disparities.

  • Be a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status or affiliated with one that can receive and manage grant funds on their behalf
