Healthy Savannah Seeks to Help Fund Faith Based Back-to-School Events
(SAVANNAH, GA) Healthy Savannah has announced it is offering grant funding to support Back-to-School and other community events organized by its faith community partners. Funds are available for applicable projects, events and programs through mid-September 2022 that include COVID-19 and flu awareness activities.
Healthy Savannah is looking to disperse approximately $7000 in grant money that is specifically earmarked to be spent in the faith community. The funds are part of an effort funded by a supplemental grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to broaden initiatives of the current Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) grant, administered by Healthy Savannah and the YMCA of Coastal Georgia. The goal of this initiative is to focus on COVID-19 and flu vaccine access, awareness, and acceptance, particularly in Savannah's Black and Hispanic communities.
Individual organizational grant amounts may range from $500 to $1500, depending on the content of the proposed plans. Smalls says funds are available immediately, upon approval of a plan submitted by an organization. All approved plans must be implemented, and activities completed, by September 18, 2022.
African American and Hispanic faith-based organizations, churches and places of worship located in the priority population communities served by Healthy Savannah are eligible to apply. The funds may be used to provide new or expanded activities or events and must benefit individuals and families in the community and/or priority communities served by Healthy Savannah.
Applicants are asked to present a one-page plan that includes an explanation of the activity or event to be funded, the activity name and proposed date, a description of the content, the activities that will be used to promote the event, and how the program is expected to engage residents who live in the surrounding neighborhoods.
The event/activity must also support COVID-19 and flu vaccine education, awareness, access, and acceptance in Chatham County's priority communities.
Applications are due on or before Friday, July 22, 2022, and early applications are encouraged. For more information and to apply, contact Dr. Elsie Smalls at email@example.com, referencing the following in the email subject line: Faith and Health Funds Grant Application-
