Prevention Institute Offers Tips to Help Applicants Submit Strong Proposals

The Prevention Institute has put together a checklist outlining key elements and strategies to further leverage the focus on community-clinical linkages in recent federal funding opportunity announcements.

The checklist highlights opportunities to improve community determinants of health through community-clinical linkages, especially in low-income communities and communities of color facing the greatest inequities in health outcomes.

The strategies include offering “green prescriptions” for interventions like walking or eating fruits and vegetables, using mapping technology to plot data on disease incidence and community conditions, and expanded use of community health workers to help residents collectively address local conditions.
