Over the past year, we have convened community members and organizations to prioritize the goals, objectives and strategies within the Blueprint For a Healthy Clackamas County report.
The new Blueprint for a Healthy Clackamas County Community Grants fund community-driven projects that work to implement the identified goals, objectives and strategies within the plan. There is an emphasis on funding projects that will create coalitions to advance health equity and trauma-informed approaches within one of ten Health Equity Zones in Clackamas County.
Approximately $216,000 is available for projects. The Blueprint grants replace the Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) grant program. Phase 1 of the grant application process is now closed. Applicants that have met the Phase 1 requirements will be advised of the Phase 2 application process.

We would like to acknowledge our partnership with United Way and their generous donation of $40,000 toward Blueprint grant funding that will help organizations to address equity framework in their applications. United Way staff will help in the grant review process.
Health Equity Zones
We divided the county into 10 Health Equity Zones to analyze health needs by geographic areas. The Health Equity Zones serve as a tool for residents, policymakers, community-based organizations and businesses to address the unique needs of the communities located in each of the zones.
