Questions and Answers
Application Deadline: June 26, 2023
The third round of Get Healthy Idaho: Building Healthy & Resilient Communities funding, specifically released for organizations serving the north central Idaho region is now open for applications. An award ceiling of up to $100,000 per year, over four years, has been established to support a community collaborative to achieve the objectives of this initiative.
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. This funding will support an Idaho community 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.
The awarded community will receive funding and support to engage 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.
Each year funding is contingent upon successful completion of subgrant deliverables, available funding, and maintenance of fiscal accountability.
