Integrating Health Equity into Funding Opportunity Announcements


Tuesday, February 20, 2018 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) developed a guide for integrating health equity language into funding announcements. The guide is meant to serve as a resource for state health agencies that are considering incorporating health equity requirements into their funding announcements. The document includes a brief glossary of common health equity terms, several examples of state and federal agencies that have incorporated health equity requirements in their strategic plans and RFPs, and a template of suggested language that states can include in their FOAs. These tools will be useful for any organization or agency that seeks to advance health equity through grant programs.
ASTHO, with support from the HHS Office of Minority Health, will host this webinar for public health professionals involved in programming to advance health equity or in the grant- making process.

Objectives for this webinar are to:

  • Describe federal leadership on state/regional health equity initiatives;
  • Provide specific examples of how a state health agency has incorporated health equity language into their funding announcements; and
  • Describe the new tool for health equity developed by ASTHO and the HHS Office of Minority Health.
