Diverse Consumer and Advocacy
The Connecticut Health Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of funding to increase the diversity of consumers participating in health reform engagement and advocacy that includes health insurance literacy for newly enrolled consumers. CT Health anticipates funding 2 to 4 grant requests ranging in size from $25,000 to $50,000.
CT Health believes trusted voices from within communities of color will more authentically represent the needs and preferences of their communities. By engaging more organizations led by and serving consumers of color in health reform, the state’s health care access and delivery system transformations will be better positioned to equitably serve all Connecticut residents.
An organization must be a 501(c)(3) and meet two or more of the following criteria to be eligible to apply for this funding:
- Nonprofit is led (e.g., executive director, CEO) by a person of color; and/or
- Nonprofit is governed by a board composed of a majority (51%+) of people of color
- Nonprofit serves populations/communities of color
Proposals are due July 24, 2015.
