Health Equity Mini-grants: Addressing Health Disparities in Communicable Disease

In April 2019, the Acute and Communicable Disease Prevention's (ACDP) Health Equity Work Group (HEWG) awarded 6 mini-grants to address health disparities in communicable disease (CD) work to counties around the state. The funds were awarded to local public health authorities to support implementation of CD projects. The projects addressed community health disparities among groups that have experienced major obstacles associated with socio-economic disadvantages and historical contemporary injustices. Mini-grant funds went toward implementation of a direct service in the community. The total amount granted was $40,067.81 minigrant infographic(see infographic).
