Representative Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) said in a recent news release, “The health challenges facing Indiana like smoking and food insecurity vary from county to county, and local service providers often know how to best address these issues.” To improve health outcomes in all Hoosier communities, providers in our area can apply for a funding boost thanks to a new state program.

Jordan said, “The Health Issues and Challenges Grant, made possible through legislation I supported, can help communities large and small tackle health problems.” Applications must be submitted by Nov. 18 to receive a portion of the $50 million grant fund.

Funding is available to local and statewide service providers and planning organizations and can be used to address health issues with Hoosiers, such as tobacco use, obesity, lead exposure, and chronic diseases like diabetes or asthma.

Grant award notices will be sent out early next year. To learn more, click here.
