The Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY) and NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s East & Central Harlem District Public Health Office (DPHO) invites organizations located in East Harlem to apply for community activation grants that promote the building of a healthy neighborhood. The grants are designed to fund the implementation of programs and projects that improve the East Harlem community based on the social determinants of health. Social determinants of health are conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship and age that affect a wide range of health outcomes and wellbeing. They include everything from access to healthy food, to housing conditions, to sidewalks and public transportation, and everything in between.
The DPHO is committed to the healthy development of East Harlem and as such looking to fund CBO’s with innovative project ideas and the capacity to quickly and effectively plan and implement them. We seek to award a total of $275,000 in June 2016: ten (10) $25,000-$50,000 community activation grants. Grant awards will be made through a community-driven approach that builds on the extensive participation and input of thousands of East Harlem residents through the East Harlem Neighborhood Plan (EHNP) process.
We encourage East Harlem CBOs that do not traditionally work or see themselves as working on public health issues to apply. The four focus areas of this grant include:
• Increase access to affordable, healthy food
• Improve the built environment
• Link residents to services that support lifestyle changes
• Bolster economic opportunity
We are particularly interested in funding those projects that impact one or more of the four focus areas and:
• Expressly build on/are related to EHNP recommendations;
• Are proposed by cross-sector collaborative teams or new partnerships;
• Respond directly to demonstrated community needs;
• Are “shovel ready” – efficiently and effectively implementable (grant funds must be used by May 30, 2017.
We encourage all CBOs interested in learning more about the Community Activation Funding application to attend the upcoming information session on Wednesday April 27, 2016 from 3-5pm at the District Public Health Office: 161-169 E 110 Street, New York, NY 10029. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the grant and how to potentially partner with other CBOs in the area.
Those interested should RSVP by Monday April 25th 5pm. Please see attached RFP for contact information.
