Grant Activities

The Center for Healthy Communities partners with university faculty, staff and community stakeholders to develop programs that positively impact our community. These grant-funded activities focus on community engagement, workforce development and service-learning opportunities.

The CHC assists throughout the proposal preparation process, acts as a liaison to the Sponsored Programs Office, and provides pre- and post-award support and supervision of grant-funded personnel.

Through successful grant applications, the CHC has:

  • Built a workforce of Opioid Navigator Community Health workers
  • Provided behavioral health services in the comfort of a pediatrician’s office
  • Enabled families with infants to participate in an at-home, early intervention parenting program to help caregivers nurture and respond sensitively to their infants
  • Offered mental health consultation services to family and center-based childcare providers in early education settings
