Health & Racial Equity 2023 Grant Opportunity
As of August 29, 2023, Riverside Community Health Foundation is pleased to announce the Health & Racial Equity 2023 Grant Opportunity, through which RCHF seeks to fund small projects that support healthcare system improvements through a health/racial equity lens. Settings include but are not limited to hospitals, clinics, and schools. Project examples are: needs assessment; patient screening and/or navigation; development or adaptation of educational materials; virtual and in-person educational experiences (e.g., trainings/seminars); evaluation; and other evidence-based interventions. Systems-level approaches may include changes in or development of policies, procedures, workflows, capacity, etc.
The projects should support programs with one or more of the following primary goals:
• Increase access to mental health services and chronic disease prevention resources in an inclusive and culturally appropriate/relevant manner, and at a systems level.
• Create and/or improve systems-level approaches within social, economic, institutional, and built environments that support mental health and chronic disease prevention.
• Integrate systems-level change that improves protective factors and/or mitigates adverse agents which affect mental and physical wellbeing; this may include COVID-19.
Grant award amounts can range between $10,000 to $20,000 for this funding opportunity. RCHF can adjust the award amount above the maximum as deemed appropriate.
The grant period is for small projects which will be implemented during the period of December 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024.
RCHF will accept Proposal Applications through the deadline of Tuesday, September 26, 2023, 5:00 PM.
