Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government entities, and faith-based organizations for programs that improve the health of and health care services for communities of color. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to applying. Funding is intended for submissions addressing racism and its impact on health.
Racism has been, and remains, the root cause of serious health inequities that unjustly affect communities of color. These disparities include increased risk for diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and mental illness; inequitable access to high-quality care; inordinately negative outcomes such as infant and maternal mortality rates for Black mothers and babies that are twice as high as those for white populations, and life expectancy that can be as much as ten years shorter than white counterparts living a short drive away.
The disproportionate harm of the COVID-19 pandemic in Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color and police killings as part of a long history of police brutality are other manifestations of structural racism and societal inequities. Addressing and dismantling racism in its myriad forms—structural, interpersonal, and institutional—is a critical and constructive approach to advancing health equity and improving population health.
