The Maricopa County Department of Public Health is offering up to $12 million in health disparities grant funding to agencies, municipalities, and other organizations among 5 regions in Maricopa County.
The funding will be used to help develop and work through strategies and interventions that consider systemic barriers and potentially discriminatory practices.

Funds are not intended for direct services or direct financial distribution to the public. Funding will be awarded via 5 opportunities for the following regions:
