The Black Health Collective will use this grant for a community engagement project to raise awareness about health inequities. The focus will be on New London County. The funds will also be used to launch a health equity podcast and a multimedia campaign aimed at highlighting health issues that impact the Black community.
This grant was awarded as part of The Sanford Cloud Awards for Diverse Advocacy, Policy, and Equity, designed to advance health equity for people of color by investing in initiatives led by graduates of the foundation’s Health Leadership Fellows Program and Academy for Health Equity Advocacy and Leadership. The award is named in honor of Sanford Cloud Jr., the foundation’s former board chair.
