Orientation Meeting Resources
The HIC Grant orientation meeting took place on Oct. 21. Materials from the meeting are available below:
The Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) is requesting applications from local and statewide service providers and planning organizations for competitive grant funding supported through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The purpose of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to fund entities within the State of Indiana to implement programs focused on addressing health issues and challenges within Indiana. These funds must be used to develop and implement services focused on increasing health outcomes and preventing and/or reducing the prevalence of one or more of the following priority areas: tobacco use prevention, food insecurity/obesity, lead exposure, chronic disease (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma, and cancer) and public health prevention programs (community paramedicine, community health workers/patient navigators). Applicants may select one or more of the priorities but must submit separate applications for each priority area. The applicant must justify the size of the budget for each category of fundable services within the stated funding limits of that priority area. Grants will be effective for a minimum 24-month period with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2023.
This new grant application is open to all projects proposing to address health issues and challenges in Indiana associated with the priority areas listed above. Applicants may select one or more of the priority areas and must submit separate applications for each priority area. The applicant must justify the size of the budget within the stated funding limits of that priority area. Funds for the Health Issues and Challenges grant program must be encumbered (obligated) by December 31, 2024, and spent by December 31, 2026. Grant awards cannot be used to supplement funding currently in place for these activities and must be used for its stated purpose.
