ACT on Health Equity: Community Solutions Challenge – May 13

Posted by AstraZeneca on April 19, 2022

AstraZeneca is inviting applications for the ACT on Health Equity: Community Solutions Challenge, which aims to support community-based nonprofit organizations that are advancing health equity among underserved United States communities through innovative health, well-being, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs at the local and regional level.

To that end, grants of $25,000 to be used over 12 months will be awarded to community-based programs working to improve conditions that affect health and well-being (such as housing, environmental and neighborhood safety, nutrition, access to care, and/or access to education and career readiness in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math). Programs must directly benefit underserved populations and prioritize their social, cultural, and linguistic needs.

Nonprofit organizations across the U.S. are invited to apply for programs benefiting one or more local communities. While not a requirement, special consideration will be provided to programs that reach AstraZeneca footprint geographies (e.g., Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, North Carolina, Texas, and California).

Eligible applicants include 501(c)(3) organizations in the U.S. delivering regional and local community-based programming (this includes local chapters of national organizations).

Deadline for applications: May 13, 2022

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the AstraZeneca website.
