BUILD grants

Learn more about funding opportunities for community and faith-based organizations that are working to improve community health and reduce the burden of chronic diseases. Also access the BUILD grant proposal template.

Together, we can pursue health and wellness for all.

Multi-Level and Multi-Generational

Everything we do as part of The COMMUNITY Center starts with our communities. Our mission is to address chronic disease management by engaging community organizations, members, and key stakeholders across the New York area using a strength-based approach.

The objective of the BUILD grant program is to impact upstream
factors and the burden of chronic diseases for our NYC communities. We hope to
generate an exchange of ideas that will solve complex problems in the real world. We also  aim to build trust by infusing the community's voices and

priorities into The COMMUNITY Center’s infrastructure.
