The Health Through Action - Community Partnerships Grant Program is a

children of these families by strengthening the capacity of AA and NHOPI

assets to meet health needs.

This grant asks each community collaborative to select a pressing local
health or healthcare issue as a starting point, build on community
assets, and identify and work on priority areas to strengthen the
capacity of their collaborative to impact change.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation and APIAHF anticipate awarding grants of up
to $150,000 per year for four (4) years to approximately eight (8)
communities. The eight communities will represent diverse AA and NHOPI
