The AARP Center for Health Equity through Nursing and the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action released a call for proposals to fund efforts to eliminate structural racism and other structural inequities within the nursing profession, health systems or community that lead to improved access to care and services for those most disproportionally impacted by health disparities. Awards of up to $50,000 will be given. Applications are due November 15, 2022.
Projects that demonstrate collaboration with the Campaign for Action’s state-based Action Coalitions will be viewed more favorably.
