Call for Proposals: 2020 Small Grants Program
Increasing the Body of Knowledge for Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing in Public Health
The Center for Sharing Public Health Services (the “Center”) is offering small grants to support work on cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) arrangements designed to advance health equity by addressing social determinants of health (e.g., affordable housing, jobs with fair pay, quality education, affordable healthy food and public safety), the public health response to COVID-19, structural racism or other related issues. Applications must be submitted by 5:00 PM CDT on September 11, 2020. Up to 5 awards will be made for an amount of up to $10,000 for a project period of up to eight months. Shorter projects will be considered. All projects must be concluded by June 11, 2021.

Featured Resource: COMPASS
COMPASS is an interactive online tool that walks through the step-by-step process of exploring, planning and implementing CJS arrangements. It follows the three phases of the Roadmap but dives deeper into each, providing additional resources such as videos, charts, surveys and timelines to help break down each phase into smaller sections.
