The Community Health Innovation Awards provide a unique chance for participants to design, develop, and implement innovative ideas for solving their most challenging community health needs. Teams work closely with mentors to develop their ideas for presentation to a panel of judges. A total of at least $50,000 has been made available for community projects ranging from $5,000-$25,000 each.
