SEARHC Garners grant.
The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium received a five-year, nearly $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The grant is part of the Community Transformation Grants program, which supports public health efforts to reduce chronic diseases and promote healthier lifestyles.
About $103 million in grants were awarded to 61 State and community health groups, including two Alaska agencies, SEARHC and the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp.
SEARHC's grant will support a program promoting healthy, tobacco-free lifestyle choices. Grant funds will be used to hire or contract a full-time grant manager, health educator, evaluator and half-time data manager. The funds will also support a regional health conference about disease prevention.
