Funding Available for Two Pilot Communities: Framework for Community Data Sharing Project

Published: 03/17/2016

Better access to, and sharing and use of, the right kind of data lead to more informed strategies for a measurable decrease in health disparities.

Two communities are sought as anchor organizations to pilot a framework for collaboration around data access, use, and sharing to end health disparities.  

Up to $20,000 is available to two selected communities to serve as pilot sites between May 1, 2016 until May 31, 2017. In addition to the funds, technical assistance and training will be provided.   The Community Indicators Consortium is partnering with Community Science in the development and support of this framework, funded by a US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health grant.

Project Rationale:

Improved ability to access, share, and use the right kind of data will lead to more informed strategies for a measurable decrease in health disparities, and ultimately to end health disparities.

Project Goals:

1. Increase and improve CBO’s use of administrative and secondary data to address one or more of the community’s most pressing health disparity concerns.

2. Test and develop a community collaboration framework for data access, sharing, and use that is effective, sustainable, and replicable.

Who is Eligible to Apply:

Organizations applying for this funding as anchor organization must be based in the United States and may include:

  • Community-based organizations;
  • Community foundations;
  • Local government agencies; and
  • Academic institutions.

Applications are due April 7, 2016.
