Assignment Overview: For this assignment, you will assume that you are employed by the local Health Department as a public health professional (any one of the five local counties in northern VA). You have been approached by a funder, called the Champion for a Healthy City Foundation, to submit a proposal for a grant. The Foundation is excited to fund programs that address specific, identified health needs within the local community. The Health Department recently compiled a summary of key health indicators that focus on health behaviors, morbidity and mortality. The information can be found on the community health dashboard. The Foundation is soliciting proposals for programs that will focus on improving the health of the community using the information on the website. You will use the Generalized Model for the planning of your program.
The Foundation has shared that grants will be awarded in the amount of up to $100,000 for a 12-month program.
Your Program Proposal will be broken down into four (4) written parts plus a presentation:
Program Proposal Part 1 will include a title, at least 5 references and a 2-3 page rationale that includes relevant and specific data and background on the health issue and community chosen, a health behavior theory or model and at least one evidence-based strategy.
