Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH): Community Grants Program Releases Call for Proposals
April, 2011Application Deadline: April 27, 2011 3:00 PM EDT
A new Community Grants program from RWJF called Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) will help spark action in communities to address the many factors that influence health. As the County Health Rankings
illustrate, social and economic factors such as education and employment can affect health directly and indirectly, and those negative effects may accumulate over individuals’ lifetimes and continue unbroken through generations. The first round of the Community Grants program is open to communities that are ready to take action to address the social and economic factors that affect health—factors which have a significant impact on health outcomes, yet are often ignored in community health improvement activities.
