Cobb & Douglas Public Health (CDPH) is accepting applications from organizations for grants of up to $25,000 to support health initiatives related to a specific list of community health issues.

The grant program is called the 2021-2022 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) Partnership Grant.

The CDPH website describes the grants as follows:

The grant serves as seed money to expand efforts related to the 2017-2021 Cobb and Douglas Community Health Improvement Plan. Proposed initiatives must be sustainable and address target populations experiencing health disparities as described in the most recent Cobb and Douglas Community Health Assessment.

It’s a 1:1 matching program for any grant above $5000. In other words if a grant of $1,000 is received the applicant organization would not be required to put up money to match the grant. But if the organization applied for $10,000, they would have to match it with $10,000 of their own money for a total of $20,000 allocated for the purpose of the grant.
