Funding Opportunity for Health Equity Leadership Development Initiative

Posted by on June 29th, 2023 Posted in: Announcements, Blog


OMH Announces New Funding Opportunity: Health Equity Leadership Development Initiative

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) anticipates funding for the Health Equity Leadership Development Initiative to implement a fellowship program at HHS to provide training in health equity issues and leadership to early career individuals to improve the health of racial and ethnic minority and other disadvantaged populations. The Health Equity Leadership Development Initiative aims to address the gap in federal fellowship opportunities for individuals to advance health equity and address the social determinants of health through health policies, programs, and practices.

Racial and ethnic minority and other disadvantaged populations suffer disparities in health services utilization. Experts have noted that ensuring diverse public health and healthcare workforce is a key strategy for increasing access to and quality of healthcare for vulnerable populations and decreasing health disparities. Efforts to establish, promote, and conduct health equity training programs are an important mechanism for achieving a diverse public health and healthcare workforce. This initiative is expected to develop a cadre of diverse health professionals with leadership skills and competencies necessary for improving the health of racial and ethnic minority and other disadvantaged populations.
