  • Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (fiscal sponsor: Tides Center) Building Healthy Communities Conference Scholarship Priority Area: Building Healthy Communities $314

    A key goal of NYSHealth’s Building Healthy Communities priority area is to create healthy communities that lead to more New Yorkers of all ages eating healthy foods, being physically active, and having access to a range of programs that encourage healthy life choices.

These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at conferences and other convenings in New York and nationally. Yet, because of a lack of resources, they are often unable to do so. To address this issue, NYSHealth is awarding grants through its Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Communities Request for Proposals (RFP). Through this RFP, NYSHealth is sponsoring community-based organizations, health departments, and other low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences related to building healthy communities.

  • Center for Court Innovation (fiscal sponsor: Fund for the City of New York) Near Westside Healthy Neighborhoods Fund Phase 2 Priority Area: Building Healthy Communities $375,000

    Good health outcomes are more prevalent in neighborhoods where people have easy access to nutritious, affordable food; safe and walkable streets; and active playgrounds and public spaces. Living in neighborhoods without these essentials, residents are more likely to be burdened with high rates of obesity, diabetes, or other chronic illnesses. In 2015, NYSHealth launched its Healthy Neighborhoods Fund, an initiative to help six communities across New York State become healthier and more active places. NYSHealth invested $2 million in the initiative during its first two years, and has since leveraged an additional $181 million in funding for these six communities, helping nearly half a million New Yorkers have greater access to healthy, affordable food and safe ways in which to be physically active. NYSHealth is continuing its commitment to the Healthy Neighborhoods Fund by investing an additional $2.5 million over the next three years in these six communities. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded a grant to the Center for Court Innovation (the Center), through fiscal sponsor Fund for the City of New York, to participate in the initiative.
