Grants to North Carolina public health agencies partnering with nonprofit organizations in eligible counties to enhance the health of rural communities during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Interested applicants are required to contact staff prior to submitting an application. Funded activities must serve Nash, Edgecombe, Rockingham, and Burke counties.

Healthy Places NC communities, like many areas of the state, are struggling to contain the spread of COVID-19 and the resulting social and economic impacts of the virus. The problems are compounded by a historic underinvestment in public health infrastructure. Rural counties have fewer resources to combat the coronavirus. Several HPNC communities are suffering disproportionate impacts or have especially vulnerable populations that are at greater risk of contracting the virus. This is a funding opportunity to support public health departments in Healthy Places NC counties to build capacity and conduct communications and advocacy efforts to address the spread of COVID-19 and assist areas with low-incomes.

For these reasons, the Trust is opening a funding opportunity for public health departments located in Healthy Places North Carolina counties. These grants should demonstrate partnerships with grassroots community groups and human service organizations. Funding must be used to serve financially vulnerable residents. Applicants can propose activities targeted to the needs to the community such as translating public health information into Spanish and other languages, getting messages to hard-to-reach populations, testing and equipment, or contact tracing for low-income residents or similar work. Regional cooperation between health departments is encouraged.


  • Build community, organizational, and individual capacity in areas with low incomes so that historically marginalized populations can participate in health improvement efforts.
  • Conduct broad-based communications, community education, and advocacy efforts that advance goals.
