Common Threads with Public Health

May 11, 2021

Common threads within Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs) and Snow-Redfern’s focus areas are what drive our funding decisions.

We are offering more opportunities for non-profit organizations to impact the lives of children and align with localized health measures.  Though the application format will look much like former versions, we have partnered with Nebraska’s Public Health Districts and the Nebraska Association of Local Health Directors (NALHD) to identify how we can build upon the work being done to address health disparities.

Common Threads 

Because we are committed to utilizing data driven priorities through our funding, applicants will be asked to align their grant goals with their region’s 2021-2023 local Public Health District’s CHIP (Community Health Improvement Plan).  The three common statewide areas of focus NALHD identified were: Mental/Behavioral Health, Access to Care, and Chronic Disease Prevention and Management.

Mental/behavioral health and access to care best align with our three priority areas, which are: basic needs, education, and well-being.

Applications will be available online from 8:00am (MST) on July 1 through 5:00pm (MST) on August 1, 2021.
