New Funding Opportunity Announcement: Community-Driven Approaches to Address Factors Contributing to Structural Racism in Public Health
The Office of Minority Health (OMH) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services administers grant programs to support projects that implement innovative models to improve minority health and reduce health disparities.
OMH has released the following funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for which applications are now being accepted:
- Opportunity Title: Community-Driven Approaches to Address Factors Contributing to Structural Racism in Public Health
- Award Amount: $300,000 to $500,000
- Estimated Total: $3,000,000 Application
- Due Date: July 15, by 6:00 p.m. ET
This notice solicits applications to support development and implementation of new policies and innovative practices to address policies that may create or perpetuate health disparities and may contribute to structural racism. OMH expects recipients to address health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations, and to demonstrate the impact of those efforts on outcomes and the overarching goal of advancing health equity.
This initiative will build upon the OMH-funded FY2021 Framework to Address Health Disparities through Collaborative Policy Efforts Initiative. In doing so, recipients will utilize and build on the tools developed under the coordinating center established under a cooperative agreement with the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI). Recipients under this announcement will utilize the developed assessment framework and tools from the coordinating center and other established frameworks/tools. Recipients will demonstrate the effectiveness of these tools to increase the capacity of community-led teams to identify policy impacts that may create or perpetuate health disparities by contributing to structural racism.
