2024 Community Health Projects

Community Health Projects grants are available once per year and are vetted by the Community Advisory Council (CAC) through a separate process from standard grants.

The Central Oregon Health Council’s Community Advisory Council (CAC) is accepting applications for projects addressing social determinants of health and health equity (SDOH-E) in the Central Oregon region. All projects must be community-level interventions focused on improving community health and well-being and reducing health disparities.

Special consideration will be given to projects that:

              • Provide basic needs like food, water, shelter, clothing, and hygiene products
              • Prioritize people from communities experiencing health disparities
              • Meet the characteristic needs of the people being served
              • Serve rural communities
              • Locally focused
              • Promotes equitable access to preventative programs for marginalized communities

To ensure projects are community specific and locally based, applicants must apply for grant funding by county.  Furthermore, each organization can only submit one 2024 Community Health Project application.

To provide the most impact per grant, each grant request must be for a minimum of $100,000.
