National Center for Healthy Housing - Grants

NCHH recently announced the opening of its 2018 competition for Healthy Homes Workforce Development mini-grants. As part of our Housing as Healthcare project, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, NCHH will competitively award 8-10 mini-grants of up to $7,500 each to communities across the country.
Through these grants, communities can create strategies to build a well-trained, knowledgeable, and reliable healthy homes workforce. 
The grants can also support community efforts to promote broader systems changes, including alternative financing strategies or the infrastructure to integrate healthy homes services into the wider health service delivery system. Efforts to expand the role of community health workers (CHWs) will be a priority, but projects that focus on other members of a healthy homes workforce (e.g., nurses, social workers, health educators, or sanitarians) are also eligible.
Additional information on the grants and how to apply can be found here: http://www.nchh.org/Policy/GrantsAndScholarshipOpportunities/HealthyHomesWorkforceDevelopmentMiniGrants18.aspx
