Health Equity Efforts in Under-Resourced Communities from Medline
Medline Community Impact Grant Program
The Medline Community Impact Grant Program supports nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and its territories that address prevalent health challenges, stimulate health equity, and improve population health in under-resourced areas. Health outcomes for people living in vulnerable communities, and already disproportionately impacted by social determinants of health (the economic and social conditions that influence health status), are at an even greater health risk. Medline will provide grants of up to $25,000 for community-centered solutions to health challenges that offer immediate impact on these vulnerable communities. (Healthcare providers are not eligible to apply.) The application deadline is August 27, 2021. Visit the Medline website to access the application portal for the Community Impact Grant Program.

City of Bend RFQ for Navigation Center Operations— NOW CLOSED
The City of Bend has released an Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a future Navigation Center operations. This is the first of a two-stage process.

Additional information, including the RFQ, can be found on the City’s procurement page. Response Due: July 13, 2021, 3:00PM Pacific Time.
