Clearwater River Corridor Collaborative
The Clearwater Economic Development Association (CEDA) has been awarded the third round of Get Healthy Idaho funding for their proposed Clearwater River Corridor Collaborative focused on the communities of Kamiah and Orofino. Work is anticipated to start September 2023.
Our health is determined by where we live, learn, work and play, such as affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, nutritious food, livable incomes, social connection, and quality educational opportunities, which protect and promote health and wellbeing. Get Healthy Idaho funding will support the Clearwater River Corridor Collaborative to address “downstream” health outcomes (diabetes, obesity, behavioral health, and unintentional injury) by shaping the factors, services and infrastructure needed “upstream” to create a community where all people can be healthy and thrive within Kamiah and Orofino.
CEDA will receive funding and support to engage the Clearwater River Corridor Collaborative in a community-led process to achieve the following milestones in phase one:
1) organize a collaborative partnership;
2) conduct a community needs assessment;
3) identify needs, priorities, and opportunities as defined by the community; and
4) develop an implementation-ready, data-driven action plan. The collaborative will receive funding to implement action plan strategies during the remaining portion of the initiative.
An award ceiling of up to $100,000 per year, over four years, has been established to support the Clearwater River Corridor Collaborative to achieve the objectives of this initiative.
