Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird declared November 15-19 as the official week to honor those heroes. As a way to say thank you, the Community Health Endowment is joining other organizations in Lincoln to cheer on hospital heroes who are starting or ending their work shift.
At its most recent meeting, the CHE Board of Trustees approved grants totaling nearly $1 million. All grants listed begin on January 1, 2022. This round of grants from the Resiliency Fund will focus efforts on vulnerable populations as determined by CHE's Place Matters Report. Projects will address mental health services for low income youth, peer mentoring for vulnerable families, youth mentoring in high poverty areas, hunger relief, and more.
Additional funds from the Resiliency Fund will be awarded in Spring, 2022.
Place matters. Our work as a city, and as a community, is to make sure that every census tract, every neighborhood, every person matters. Through data-driven information, like this new report, we are able to do more, invest deeper, and be better.
