Pilot Projects to Address Factors Contributing to Structural Racism in Public Health
NOTE: This is a Forecasted Opportunity.
The Pilot Projects to Address Factors Contributing to Structural Racism in Public Health (Pilot Projects Initiative) initiative is intended to support community-led coalitions in developing and implementing new and innovative practices to address policies that might create or perpetuate health disparities and contribute to structural racism. The pilot projects will: (1) assess policies that might create or perpetuate health disparities and contribute to structural racism; (2) develop new policies or modify existing policies to reduce health disparities by mitigating factors contributing to structural racism; and (3) modify or develop and implement innovative practices to reduce health disparities by improving access to public health services in ways that mitigate the factors contributing to structural racism.
The goal of the Pilot Projects Initiative is to identify policies contributing to structural racism and effectuate policy changes to address structural racism and advance health equity. The Pilot Projects initiative will build upon OMH’s FY 21 initiative (Collaborative Policy Efforts – NOFO link here) in which a coordinating center will lead the development of a methodological framework and tools for assessing policies that may create or perpetuate health disparities by contributing to structural racism. Awardees of the Pilot Projects initiative will create community-based coalitions that utilize the developed framework and tools (from the Collaborative Policy Efforts Initiative).
