The Public Health Institute (PHI) is pleased to release a Request for Applications for Creating a Climate for Health Pilot Projects.
With funding from the Kresge Foundation, PHI will support pilot projects in three geographically diverse, urban communities in California to demonstrate approaches to incorporate climate change into current public health program practice and/or to enhance public health participation in on-going local climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resilience work. Each grantee will be awarded $20,000 for 12 months of work within the state of California. The purpose of the pilot projects is to develop models that can be held up, scaled up, and replicated that simultaneously address climate change and community health and health equity. Projects can be new or complement existing projects.
The deadline for applications is July 1, 2013.
