Grants awarded by the Community Health Endowment (CHE) will help increase healthy opportunities for at-risk youth, break down barriers to health care access for non-English speakers, build leadership capacity in Native American youth and people from diverse backgrounds, and complete park amenities in southwest Lincoln. The CHE Board of Trustees approved grants totaling up to $184,981 for year one and $369,981 over three years. All grants listed begin on July 1, 2019.

The Community Health Endowment of Lincoln (CHE) has announced the last five events in the year-long Health 20/20 series celebrating its 20th anniversary. All events are free, and open to the public. The events include a week-long kindness initiative, a Downtown Wellness Tour, and several Pop-Up Story Times, among others.

Applicant Workshops for CHE's Fall 2019 Grant Cycle will take place on Tuesday, April 9, at 10 a.m. and Wednesday, April 10, at 12 noon. Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch to the Wednesday workshop. CHE staff will share information on CHE's funding priorities and preferences, where to find data to support an application, and tips for completing a successful Stage I application. We've revised the workshop format so you can start with your idea and develop it into an outline for a grant application.

Both workshops cover the same content and will be held at CHE, 250 North 21st St, Suite 2. Registration is requested and available online here: https://che-lincoln.eventbrite.com. Free parking is available in the parking lot north of the building at 21st and Q Streets or along 21st Street between O and P Streets south of the building. Please leave the parking spaces in front of the building open for the patrons of The Hub Café. Stage I Applications for the Fall 2019 Grant Cycle are due to CHE by noon on Friday, June 7, 2019.
