The Central Oregon Health Council is responsible for investing $12 million in the communities in our region between January 2020 and December 2024. These investments must directly impact our Regional Health Improvement Plan. Our priority areas each have a workgroup of community members who decide together how to invest the funds.
When there are specific unmet needs in our communities, the workgroups create grant opportunities, also known as Requests for Proposal (RFPs). These Requests for Proposal must impact one measure in the Regional Health Improvement Plan (for example, increasing high school graduation rates or decreasing food insecurity).
