The Asian American Health Initiative (AAHI), a part of the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, is soliciting micro-grant applications from eligible organizations to improve capacity, sustainability, and infrastructure of organizations that provide health and wellness programs and social support services to the County’s Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. Micro-grants are being awarded for purchase of equipment, advancement of professional development, and hiring of capacity building consultants.
The micro-grants program is a part of AAHI’s Asian American Center of Excellence (AACE). As a part of AAHI’s evolving efforts in capacity building, AAHI has formed the Asian American Center of Excellence (AACE). The goal of the AACE is to support Asian American-serving community-organizations in developing and increasing their capacity to successfully provide health, wellness, and social support programs and services. AAHI has contracted the Primary Care Coalition (PCC) to oversee the administration and implementation of the AACE micro-grants program.
