Strategies to Reach and Implement the Vision of Health Equity (STRIVE)

The Strategies to Reach and Implement the Vision of Health Equity (STRIVE) grant is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of its Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health REACH efforts. Through the STRIVE project, APIAHF is distributing three million dollars to 15 CBOs to plan and implement high impact, population wide strategies related to physical activity, nutrition and weight management.

APIAHF’s goals for this initiative include:

  • Increasing the ability of AA and NHPI community-based organizations (CBOs) and coalitions to implement high-impact, population-wide, evidence- and practice-based strategies that reduce health disparities for AA and NHPI populations due to lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, and weight.
  • Ensuring meaningful involvement and input from AA and NHPI populations in the development and implementation of a community health action plan focused on high-impact, population-wide improvements.
