The UI College of Public Health’s Business Leadership Network (BLN) Community Grant Program supports programs and activities that build collaborations and support community well-being.
The purpose of the BLN Community Grant is to foster collaboration in Iowa communities in addressing areas of identified community health or public health need.
“We’re excited to support these locally initiated projects to improve community health,” says Edith Parker, dean of the College of Public Health. “The grant program is one way the college is partnering with communities and business leaders across the state to increase the well-being of Iowans.”
Grants are awarded on a competitive basis to nonprofit organizations and local government entities in communities that are located within the state of Iowa. The grant program funds, in conjunction with an equal cash or in-kind match from another organization, will be used for public health-related initiatives and projects in the recipient communities.
