man writing in notebook at deskApplication due by 5 p.m. October 12, 2022.


The Community Health Improvement Workgroup is calling for proposals to fund those who have expertise in either of the two priority areas highlighted in the 2022-2024 Monroe County Joint Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Those two priority areas are:

(1) Addressing Disparities in Maternal and Child Health 

(2) Promoting Mental Health and Well-Being

This CHIW Mini-Grant process will fund small-scale (up to $10,000) local, city-wide, or county-wide ongoing or new initiatives that are short-term (one year in duration maximum) and address the goals of the 2022-2024 Monroe County CHIP.

Reporting requirements will not be burdensome; however, project leaders will report successes to the CHIW on a periodic basis both through brief written reports and by attending CHIW meetings quarterly.
