New “Spark of Change” Grants

Through the leadership of our inaugural Director of Health Equity, Dr. Marcellus C. Taylor, the Partnership for Better Health is developing a full complement of health equity strategies and grants. Our introductory health equity grant is called Spark of Change. Spark of Change grants are mini grants that are intentionally focused on addressing health equity challenges, finding solutions, and amplifying voices at the neighborhood level. Neighborhoods have a shared history and collective community characteristics that set them apart. Applicants for Spark of Change grants must narratively demonstrate how their project will impact a specific community in our service area. We anticipate average grant awards of $5,000. Applications are due March 3, 2022.  To learn more about this funding opportunity and to apply, follow this link to view the complete Request for Applications _ Spark of Change _Feb 2022.
