Minority and Multicultural Health Grants
About the Eliminating Health Disparities Grants
The Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative funds Community Grants. These grants provide grantees an opportunity to:
- work toward eliminating the health disparities of racial and ethnic populations;
- promote the health and quality of life of individuals and communities;
- build on community strengths and assets to address health issues;
- develop effective working relationships among community members and the organizations and leaders who serve them;
- focus on prevention and early detection.
These grants are awarded to community based organizations so they can reduce racial/ethnic health disparities for Africans/African Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos in Minnesota as compared with whites in the following eight priority health areas: breast and cervical cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections, immunizations for adults and children, infant mortality, healthy youth development, and violence and unintentional injuries.
