The Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY) on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is seeking neighborhood partners to help generate broad community participation in Take Care New York Community Consultation events.
DOHMH is currently revising Take Care New York, the City’s strategic health agenda, to focus on achieving health equity and creating healthy communities. Starting in October, DOHMH will hold Community Consultations in multiple neighborhoods within each borough in order to share the revised health agenda as well as learn from community members about local health priorities. Organizations that have a strong community base in the neighborhoods where the Community Consultations will be taking place may be eligible to receive funds in the amount of $1,000 - $10,000 to conduct outreach and raise resident awareness and participation in the events.
To apply for this opportunity, please complete the application cover page and the attached funding grid. Applications must be submitted electronically to email@example.com and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Questions received will be posted at: http://fphny.org/whatsnew/rfps.
