OMNI is applying for funding to develop capacity-building tools and resources for health equity related issues for Colorado communities. Tools and resources will support communities in 1) better addressing and enhancing focus on understanding
the social determinants of health within their planning and work; 2) building organizational capacity around addressing health inequities and evaluating efforts; and 3) leveraging their existing work and collaborations/partnerships to improve health equity in their community. In order to do this well and be responsive to community needs, we plan to collaborate and pilot test these resources with two local public health agencies who are committed to building capacity to address community health equity issues.
