New Community Funding Opportunity
Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH) community funding programs are meant to support community partnerships that tackle racial justice and health equity challenges in their community by building community capacity to form multi-sector collaborations, inclusive of community and resident leadership, that share and use data to work toward improved health equity. To that end, DASH provides funding, operational support, peer learning, strategic planning, technical assistance, and training.
NEW COMMUNITY FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: ASSET-BASED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
DASH is seeking community organizers that are convening community members, institutions, and organizations to identify interventions to combat health disparities in underserved areas. Underserved & historically excluded communities refers to populations sharing a particular characteristic, as well as a common geography, that have been systematically denied a full opportunity to participate in aspects of economic, social, and civic life.
This cohort is designed for organizations and organizers that are highly interested in developing their work through an Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) program design, which prioritizes local strengths and assets, especially grass-roots community leadership.
Please note that this opportunity is only available to communities based in the United States of America.
