About This Funding
The Coalitions for Health Improvement (CHI) Community Initiatives funding is made possible by the North Central Accountable Community of Health (NCACH) under the statewide Medicaid Transformation. This funding is for local and regional initiatives across Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan counties with the goal of advancing whole-person health.
CHI Community Initiatives funding is dedicated to:
Improving health and wellness of underserved communities across Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan Counties
Developing innovative programs, projects, and strategies that connect community partners and improve health locally
Promoting creative and collaborative approaches to improve health and factors that affect health like housing, education, nutrition, transportation, and employment opportunities
Providing opportunities for shared and regional learning
Funding is intended to be used to catalyze new efforts and/or expand current efforts to address the social determinants of health, advance whole-person health, and promote community – clinical collaborations in North Central Washington.
This is not a traditional grant program. This funding is awarded through a community investment process managed by the Coalitions for Health Improvement. This process includes interaction with the local Coalitions for Health Improvement, including but not limited to Letter of Intent (LOI) feedback, application review, and scoring, and award finalist selection. The Coalitions are looking to fund initiatives that demonstrate innovation, collaboration, and connection to local health needs in the region. Funded applicants will be asked to communicate progress regularly with their local Coalitions, as well as provide other opportunities for CHI member involvement in their projects, as appropriate.
