NACCHO and ASTHO have released a Request for Proposals to fund up to 50 communities at $50,000 each to evaluate their work to advance health equity by addressing social determinants of health (SDoH). The purpose of this funding opportunity is to identify and learn from multi-sector coalitions with a demonstrated history of addressing the SDoH outcomes related to chronic disease conditions, focusing on the built environment, clinical-community linkages, food insecurity, social connectedness, and tobacco-free policies. In order to build the evidence-base for collaborative approaches to SDoH, the project will evaluate and assess through technical support the impact of the coalitions’ recent SDoH experience and highlight successful strategies and interventions. Local, state, tribal, and territorial health departments are encouraged to apply.

The deadline to apply for this funding opportunity is Tuesday December 8, 2020 at 5:00pm EST. For more information visit NACCHO’s Chronic Disease webpage.
