MeHAF announces a new request for initial applications, issued October 12, 2017. We ask applicants to respond to this request as the first step in our Health Equity Capacity Building grants program.

  • work to improve health access and/or health status for communities facing health disparities based on factors including race, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, homelessness or veteran status, and
  • have primary leadership from among the people they serve.
