One of just two awards made nationwide, the three-year grant totaling $250,000 will allow CI:Now and its partners to integrate data on health outcomes with sub-county data on social determinants of health like income, education, and housing. The grant will support the design of an online data portal that makes it easy for both beginner and advanced data users to access the data. The grant also supports outreach, training, and technical assistance to help people understand and use the data.
