Grants averaging between $1,000 and $2,500 to Northeast Indiana nonprofits, k-12 schools, and IHEs in eligible regions for programs that strive to create a qualified and diverse health care workforce. Eligible programs are those that work to improve health in underserved areas. Primary care and public health are critical components to improving health and health care in Indiana.

The proposed projects must benefit residents in at least one of the following counties in Indiana: Adams, Allen, Blackford, DeKalb, Delaware, Elkhart, Grant, Huntington, Jay, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Randolph, Steuben, Wabash, Wells, and/or Whitley.

The Northeast Indiana AHEC seeks proposals for projects under this mini-grant program that address barriers to creating a diverse, qualified health care workforce throughout our entire seventeen-county region. Examples of barriers include socioeconomic and educational disadvantage, as well as cultural, language, and geographic challenges.

The mission of the Indiana AHEC Network is to improve health by recruiting, educating, and retaining health care professionals in underserved communities. This mission is accomplished through these three broad programming areas, with examples of activities listed:

1. Engaging youth (middle/high school) in health careers through education and promotion (health career awareness experiences, field trips, summer camps, enrichment programs, etc.);
2. Creating targeted clinical training experiences for students in health professions programs (clinical rotations, outreach programs, inter-professional education experiences, and service learning); and
3. Developing continuing education programs for practicing health professionals (interprofessional education opportunities, conferences, workshops, and professional development).
