Health Disparities Grants

The Local Health Department Health Disparities Funding Opportunity has allowed the Health Department to fund two categories of grants. The first is for local organizations to identify and recruit community leaders to create a network of certified Community Health Workers (CHW) to aid in chronic disease prevention and management, and to decrease hospitalization utilization rates in identified communities. The second grant will be awarded to local organizations to provide ongoing support for this CHW network.
