Valley Health begins accepting Community Partnership Grant applications

Valley Health is now accepting applications for a Community Partnership Grant from community agencies and nonprofits addressing the region’s health challenges.

A total of $200,000 will be distributed to 11 grants in increments ranging from $2,500 to $100,000.

Proposals for Community Partnership Grants are evaluated based on their potential to impact four health priorities identified by a recent Community Health Needs Assessment.

The 2022 CNHA analyzed over 1,800 surveys, 200 interviews with community leaders, and six community response sessions and found that the areas needing the most attention include:

  • Mental Health and Substance Use
  • Health Behaviors and Chronic Disease
  • Access to Care
  • Social Economic Factors

Valley Health also plans to invest more than $800,000 in other critical partnerships with community health organizations.

Director of Community Health Jason Craig said, “We recognize our community’s health concerns are complex and we cannot solve them alone. Partnering with community agencies enables us to leverage our resources to make a more meaningful impact on persistent health trends and disparities affecting our region.”

2023 recipients include:

  • $100,000
    • Morgan County Partnership
  • $25,000
    • Page Alliance for Community Action
    • Winchester Area Temporary Transitional Shelter
