The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), and Delaware Healthy Mother & Infant Consortium (DHMIC) are seeking applicants for Healthy Women, Healthy Babies (HWHB) Zones mini-grants up to $50,000 to improve maternal and infant health outcomes in Delaware using community-based approaches. It is anticipated that two new mini-grantees will be funded for the new grant cycle — each will receive up to $50,000 — for the 20-month grant period.

DEADLINE: 08/12/2022

The HWHB Zones is a collective impact approach where the aim is to build state and local capacity, and to test small-scale innovative strategies in the community. By doing so they hope to shift the impact of social determinants of health tied to root causes related to infant and maternal mortality and morbidity.

DPH, and DHMIC are committed to supporting local organizations whose results-driven work strives to accomplish this and further build upon mortality reduction work in Delaware.
