Grants to Lincoln Area, Nebraska nonprofits and agencies for innovative health services, projects and programs. Workshops will be held the week of October 17, 2016, and the mandatory LOI is due January 13, 2017. Funding is intended for practices that cause health care providers to take an active role in helping patients stay healthy outside of a clinical setting, as well as make investments in early childhood that have the greatest potential to reduce health disparities over the lifespan.

Early childhood priorities:

- Adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress;
- Childhood obesity; and/or
- Improved maternal health, and healthy birth and early childhood outcomes;

Other Priorities:
- Intentional linkages between housing, health, neighborhood organizations, financial institutions, and economic development; and
- Prevention-focused efforts that foster healthy behaviors and lead to improved health outcomes.

Within these priorities, CHE encourages applicants to:
- Consider the relationship of poverty to the issue being addressed and how poverty influences both the cause of, and the solution to, the identified issue.
- Utilize, whenever possible, locally-based geographic data to identify target groups and/or high-risk areas or neighborhoods.
