Partnering & Grants

The Center for Community Health & Prevention partners with the community to help residents of Rochester and the Finger Lakes region lead healthier lives.

There are multiple opportunities to partner with us on health-related initiatives. Grants, Community Engagement Studios and other research initiatives are a few of the ways we can work together.

Community Vaccine Education Grant: Up to $3,000 per organization; Rochester Area Community Foundation wants to help residents in Rochester’s low-income neighborhoods better understand the importance of continuing to be tested for COVID-19, and how and where to access the vaccination. The goal is to improve vaccination rates in these neighborhoods and share information on how citizens can protect themselves and their family and friends.
