04/10/19 5:00 PM CT
Grants starting at $5,000 to South Dakota nonprofit community-based organizations, local government agencies, schools, IHEs, youth groups, other organizations, and worksites for a broad range of projects that reduce chronic disease. Funding is intended to support community and organizational efforts, promote collaboration among organizations, and advance the mission of the SD DOH, which is to promote, protect, and improve the health of every South Dakotan.
The Office of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (OCDPHP) within the SD Department of Health (SD DOH) is committed to helping communities in South Dakota implement evidence-based chronic disease prevention and health promotion strategies to improve where they live, work, learn and play.
The OCDPHP promotes evidence-based public health and uses data to drive program decisions, which is why applicants are required to complete a community health needs assessment. A community health needs assessment is a structured process conducted in collaboration with community groups, organizations, and stakeholders focused on determining the health status and needs of a community through the systematic collection and analysis of qualitative and quantitative data using primary and secondary data sources.
The application contains three Goal Areas; Eat Well, Move More and Feel Better. Within each Goal Area, applicants are required but not limited to select one sector and implement at least one strategy. Applicants need to select at least two different sectors throughout the three goal areas. For example, you cannot choose to work with only worksites under each of the three goal areas.
Grant strategy sectors include worksites, schools, communities, healthcare, and childcare. For further information about sectors and strategies, see:
