Request for Proposals: Diverse Advocacy and Consumer Engagement in Health Reform

Application Deadline: Monday, April 21, 2014

The Connecticut Health Foundation (CT Health) is pleased to announce the availability of funding to increase the diversity of consumers participating in health reform engagement and advocacy. Our theory is that including the voices of consumers of color will mean:
•The needs, values, and preferences of consumers affected by inequities are represented in opportunities to change the health care system;
•Leaders of color become even more effective messengers for health equity in health reform; and
•Bridges between health care systems and consumers of color are built or strengthened.

CT Health seeks to support PoC led nonprofits that work on advocacy and consumer engagement strategies to ensure health reform benefits populations of color. This is an opportunity to help deepen and/or expand your organization’s efforts and to partner with CT Health and a growing network of groups that are involved in advocacy and consumer engagement strategies in health reform.
