Reid Health knows the only way we can improve the health of the communities we serve is by working together with other organizations in the community. Through our collaboration and funding, we can improve our communities and ensure tomorrow will be even brighter than today.
So how are grants distributed?
Grants are distributed based on a set of prioritized health needs and an applicant's plans to address these needs. We know there are unmet needs in the communities we serve, and with the help of the community, it is our mission to help.
How does Reid know what my community's health needs are?
Every three years a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is performed for our service area. This process involves the community to identify and analyze community health needs and assets, in order to prioritize needs, and develop a plan to act upon the significant unmet needs in the community. A CHNA, along with an implementation plan are conducted every three years. The plan for 2017-2019 identified the following areas to be the primary areas of focus:
- Access to Care
- Mental Health & Substance Abuse
- Nutrition, Physical Activity and Weight
These plans are always available in further detail at Reidcommunities.org
