  • Plan, develop, implement, and/or sustain a solution
  • Create action by energizing community members around a common, shared health concern
Awardees will be expected to participate in grantee meetings up to 3 times yearly to share lessons learned with other grantees and participate in evaluation and learning activities for the grant and part of the overall initiative.
