Current NCHH Grant or Scholarship Opportunities
Now Accepting Applicants: 2018 Healthy Homes Workforce Development Mini-Grants
The National Center for Healthy Housing, with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is offering mini-grants for communities to integrate healthy homes activities into their healthcare systems and policies, as well as develop a well-trained, knowledgeable, and reliable workforce to provide healthy homes services. The mini-grants support communities’ efforts to build a pool of trained community health workers (CHWs) skilled at offering services in the home, particularly those that improve asthma outcomes and support lead poisoning and injury prevention. This round of mini-grant applications also encourages efforts to promote broader changes to the health systems as well as workforce development. Learn more about the mini-grant application process.
