New Mexico Health Equity Partnership: Health Impact Assessment with a Lens toward Improving the Health and Well-being of Vulnerable Children in Rural, Tribal, Immigrant and Refugee Communities – Funding Announcement!

The New Mexico Health Equity Partnership (HEP), an initiative at the Santa Fe Community Foundation, believes every New Mexican should have the opportunity to lead a healthy life, to live in neighborhoods where our children and families thrive and have a say in the decisions that impact their communities. We train residents and community groups on how to make a more compelling case with greater impact when engaging policymakers on issues they care most about. One critical tool that we provide and teach is the Health Impact Assessment (HIA). Through the HIA, advocates and residents learn how to collect and utilize data that can inform policy change, and hold decision makers more accountable. The HIA is an effective means in empowering and elevating community members’ voices. HIA has produced the following results:

  • It builds leadership. Community members learn how to navigate the political system. They become more knowledgeable about decision making processes, and they become more comfortable with speaking before decision makers.
  • It commands attention from decision makers and leads to the adoption of community recommendations.
  • It fosters communication and collaboration among disparate groups that previously did not have good relationships.

Through this HIA funding opportunity, HEP is excited to announce that we will be able to support two new HIAs in 2017.  This includes: $35,000 in funding, a webinar series, in-person training, and ongoing coaching provided by HEP technical assistance providers and HEP staff. HEP is prioritizing applicants working in rural, tribal, refugee, and immigrant communities whose HIA will impact the health of vulnerable children

The HEP team asks applicants to please review, complete and submit the application, including organizational and financial information, screening form, and work plan.  Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2017.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact us about their HIA ideas in February 2017 before starting the application so we can provide guidance and feedback. Applicants should submit their completed application by email to Jessi Jensen (jjensen@nmhep.org).  If you are not able to submit your application via email, please contact Jessi Jensen at 505-490-1202 for alternative methods for submitting the application.
