Grants for up to $10,000 for health advocacy in Kentucky. The purpose of the funding is to support advocacy programming seeking to implement, expand or enforce public or institutional policies that will improve community health.

Applicants should focus on one of two priority areas:
1. Health education and prevention, which includes fitness and nutrition for children and families, youth smoking prevention, and youth substance abuse prevention.
2. Enhanced access to health services and care for all ages, which includes access to health care for low-income and uninsured populations, access to health care for rural populations, and access to integrated mental health and medical services.
Elements of effective advocacy may include, but are not limited to: Research and analysis; evaluation and comment on administrative and regulatory proposals; community organizing; issue framing and messaging; public education and information campaigns; stakeholder engagement – building advocacy capacity of diverse stakeholders; solutions identification; coalition building; media advocacy; and educational materials for consultation with opinion leaders and policymakers.
