Funding Opportunities

NHSC Zika Loan Repayment Program – April 6. Health care providers can receive up to $70,000 for a three-year commitment at National Health Service Corps (NHSC)-approved sites in Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories as they work to address the health effects and risks associated with Zika.

AmeriCorps State and National Grants – April 19.  State and local governments, American Indian Tribes and nonprofit organizations are among those eligible to apply for program funding designed to strengthen communities and solve local problems, including those found in rural and underserved areas. With this competition, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) seeks to prioritize investment of national service resources in reducing and/or preventing prescription drug and opioid abuse.  In addition, the CNCS is accepting applications for AmeriCorps Indian Tribes Grants for community-level investment in education, economic opportunity, and improving health outcomes. Letters of intent for both programs are due April 19th for an application deadline on May 10th.

Nutrition Education on Indian Reservations – May 1.  Indian Tribal Organizations (ITO) and State agencies (SA) currently participating in the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations are eligible to apply for FY17 Food Distribution Program Nutrition Education (FDPNE) grants. ITOs and SAs may apply individually and/or as a consortium (e.g., as a region or a regional nutrition advisory council), and successful applicants will use the FY 2017 SNAP Education Plan Guidance as the basis for nutrition, gardening, and physical activities at the community level.
