Health Equity Update - April 2019

Updated: May 7, 2019

Happy Spring! It’s Stephanie, and I’m back again with some tips and updates to you as NCRP members whose work falls in the health equity movement. As a reminder, the goal of these emails to make sure our NCRP members have the resources and tools to be informed and to feel empowered in the sector. Here are the updates I have for you today:

1) In case it wasn’t on your radar, Grantmakers in Health, a network of health funders, regularly updates Requests for Proposals from funders in their network. I’ve included the most recent update from March.

2) I came across a Rural Philanthropy Toolkit from the Rural Health Information Hub. It’s a toolkit designed for rural communities looking to build stronger relationships with philanthropy. It looks like a great introduction to philanthropy, and includes a wealth of information on grantwriting, evaluation tips, and case studies. I’d also love to know if you have had experience working with the Rural Health Information Hub!

3) NCRP member Center for Medicare Advocacy has released a joint statement with the Medicare Rights center about the potentially harmful effects of the new proposed budget on Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act. They are also collecting stories on your experiences with Medicare, Medicaid, and the ACA. If you or someone you know is interested in sharing your story, the link is here.

4) Lastly, we have a new benefit for our members! We are excited to announce that you are now able to create a free or low cost bank account with Amalgamated Bank, along with being assigned a preferred banker and receiving discounts on services. You can log in to your account at to view the benefit and ask any questions. You can also read more about Amalgamated Bank and in this recent article from Crain Communications.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me!

In solidarity, Stephanie
