Get Healthy Idaho:
Building Healthy & Resilient Communities
2021-2022 Funding Announcement
Application Deadline: August 6, 2021
By investing in the social determinants of health, this funding opportunity aims to address Get Healthy Idaho’s four strategic health priorities - diabetes, obesity, behavioral health, and unintentional injury. Research clearly shows that up to 80 percent of what makes us healthy is determined by factors outside of clinic walls, such as access to affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, nutritious foods, livable incomes, and quality educational opportunities. This initiative will support an Idaho community to address poor health conditions “downstream” by shaping the factors, supports, services and infrastructure needed “upstream” to create a community where people can be healthy and thrive.
For the first year of funding the awarded community will receive support to engage in a community-led process to organize a collaborative partnership, conduct or expand upon a community health needs assessment, and develop an innovative and data-driven action plan that addresses the barriers to good health and well-being in the community. The remaining three years of the initiative will be devoted to implementing the action plan. Each year funding is contingent upon successful completion of subgrant deliverables, available funding, and maintenance of fiscal accountability.
