Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, faith-based organizations, Tribes, and IHEs to reduce health disparities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to ten business days to complete. Funding is intended to support the identification of effective approaches for improving health outcomes with the ultimate goal of promoting dissemination and sustainability of these approaches.

This notice solicits applications for projects for the Accessing Social Determinants of Health through Local Data Intermediaries Initiative. A local data intermediary is a community-based entity that acts as the mediator between data and local stakeholders, such as nonprofit organizations, community and faith-based organizations, governments, foundations and residents. The purpose of this initiative is to demonstrate whether existing local data intermediaries can facilitate community stakeholder access to and utilization of integrated community-level data, and increase community stakeholder skill and capacity to use and apply data to address health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations.

OMH expects the projects funded through this initiative to result in: (1) increased utilization of integrated community-level SDOH/social need/social risk and health data to develop local policies, programs and practices to address health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations; and (2) increased capacity of community stakeholders to use data to make data-informed decisions to improve the health of racial and ethnic minority and disadvantaged populations. 

OMH expects recipients to act as local data intermediaries to:

  • Develop and implement a disparity impact statement
  • Build upon existing local data infrastructure. 
  • Advise, assist and train community stakeholders. 
  • Implement a process and outcomes evaluation. 
  • Document and disseminate project findings.
  • Develop and begin implementation of a sustainability plan.
