ODH Announces Disparities in Maternal Health Community Grant Program

The Ohio Department of Health Tuesday announced the availability of grant funds for the maternal health community. Providers chosen for the grants will receive funding to implement innovative and culturally humble initiatives to address racial/ethnic and/or geographic health disparities related to maternal health in Ohio.
The solicitation seeks to fund solutions identified by communities to address unmet needs through a disparity-focused, equity lens. Applicants that seek to reduce disparities in maternal health through these approaches will be prioritized.

Potential applicants are encouraged to participate in an information session to be held via conference call from 2-4 p.m. on July 9. The conference call is being offered to allow potential applicants the opportunity to discuss the solicitation and learn about the elements of a successful application. 

All interested applicants must submit a Notice of Intent to Apply for Funding (NOIAF – Appendix A) no later than July 13.
