If your school or program is seeking the capacity to address a public health issue, consider applying by January 4, 2023, for funding from Public Health AmeriCorps. The program was launched in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and is a $400 million investment to engage new communities and individuals in public health, recruiting and building a workforce ready to respond to the nation’s public health needs.
Last year, over 80 organizations were awarded more than $60 million.
Funding is open to nonprofit, faith-based, Tribal, and community-based organizations; higher-education institutions; and state, local and territorial government entities, including local public health departments.
