Grant Opportunity Promotes Community Health Collaborations

Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH), a national initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will provide grants of up to $200,000 to community collaborations and initiatives nationwide that have used shared data and information to increase their capacity for planning, implementing, and evaluating health improvement activities.

The focus is on helping community collaborations to strengthen data and information sharing among partners, engage additional partners across and beyond traditional health sectors, and build sustainable capacity.

Applicants should have active relationships with organizations in two or more sectors relevant to community health improvement objectives, encompassing healthcare and at least one other sector, such as human services, community development, education, etc. Nonprofit organizations and public entities are eligible to apply.

The deadline for brief proposals is July 29. Full proposals will be due October 21.
