Grants to Ohio nonprofit, civic, and faith-based organizations, groups, schools, school districts, IHEs, and government agencies in eligible locations for community-driven projects that address the health needs of local residents. Eligible applicants are located in the 36 counties of the funding source's service area.

Proposed projects should respond to the needs of the community, and fall within one of the following strategies:

  • Age-Friendly Communities: Older adults live and participate in communities to their fullest potential, free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
    • Multi-generational initiatives that support older adults living in the community
    • Community awareness campaigns that increase the visibility of older adults
    • Programs to create a more age-friendly community within any result area
    • Programs that teach parents about how to talk with their children about health
    • Programs that provide youth with hands-on, problem-based learning around health and health issues
  • Oral Health (Across the lifespan): Ohioans have access to oral health education and services. Oral health is essential to general health and well-being at every stage of life.
  • Healthy Ohioans: Ohioans have access to the resources they need to be healthy, including access to care and healthy food.
    • Health promotion programs that encourage families and community residents to talk about and engage in healthy behaviors
    • Programs to bring fresh, healthy foods to food deserts

The Community Connections grants opportunity will award general operating funding to organizations achieving the work of HealthPath's three result areas.
