Coalition Seed Grant Program
Since 2007, Community Coalitions Health Institute (CCHI) has issued seed grants to nearly half of the National Business Coalition on Health's (NBCH) coalition members. The seed grant program was established as an opportunity for the national organization to raise funds on behalf of its members, conduct a competitive application process, and award funds to promising projects across the country that incorporate value-based purchasing strategies into public-private collaborations in an effort to improve community health and health care delivery.
CCHI works with funders to determine program focus as well as criteria - a minimum of which includes established partnerships with community stakeholders and evaluation and outcomes methodology to support the mission and goals of CCHI.
An external review committee of subject-matter experts and those familiar with business health coalitions is identified for each round of seed grants to determine fundable projects. NBCH staff and consultants provide the grantees with technical assistance throughout the project as well as manage each seed grant program.
Seed grant programs to date include:
