If you’re interested in applying for a grant from the Community Health Endowment, plan to attend an Applicant Workshop on Tuesday, October 17, at 2 p.m. or Wednesday, October 18, at 9:30 a.m. The workshops focus on the Stage I application and include information on CHE’s funding priorities and preferences, finding local data to support your application, and the revised CHE application form. You'll also get tips on writing your best grant application from a professional editor and grant writer. Registration is requested and available online by clicking the headline of this article.

Stage I applications for the Spring 2018 grant cycle are due at noon on Friday, January 12, 2018. CHE will provide additional training for applicants invited to submit Stage II applications in April, 2018.

CHE's most recent grants will provide critically needed services in ways that are culturally sensitive and appropriate to better meet the needs of the people served. The CHE Board of Trustees approved grants totaling $534,279 in the first year and $1,273,308 over three years.

When CHE introduced the Place Matters Community Mapping Project in 2015, it changed the way we look at health in Lincoln. We’ve updated the maps and will reveal them at CHE’s 2017 Annual Meeting. We’ll also share three powerful stories of people creating health in their ‘place’ in Lincoln through innovation, investing in early childhood, and fighting childhood obesity. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 31, at 3 p.m. at the Bryan East Plaza Conference Center, 1600 S. 48th Street. Please register online:
