Modernized Anti-Racist Data Ecosystems (MADE) for Health Justice is a grant opportunity that seeks to accelerate the development of health-focused local data ecosystems that center principles of anti-racism, equity, justice, and community power.
Through MADE for Health Justice, non-profit organizations will be funded to build and facilitate multi sector teams tasked with creating local data ecosystems. These ecosystems must focus on improving community health, connecting data across multiple sectors of local government, prioritizing the needs and voices of communities oppressed by structural racism, and ultimately driving just and equity-centered decision making.
The inaugural cohort of MADE communities was announced on August 17, 2023, and includes cities and counties in Arizona, Maryland, Oregon, and Pennsylvania. The $5 million investment across all four communities will support the planning, implementation, and sustainability of their data ecosystems over the next three years. Learn more about each project.
