Healthy Vision Community Awards

from the ELDERCARE@LISTSERV.IHS.GOV

Special Announcement from the National Eye Institute (NEI), National Institutes of Health

The NEI is pleased to announce the 2007 Healthy Vision Community Awards. This Program provides funding for the implementation of health education and health promotion activities that support the Healthy Vision 2010 objectives and the Healthy People 2010 goals to reduce health disparities and improve quality of life.

For more information about the 2007 Healthy Vision Community Awards, visit

…they are looking specifically for COMMUNITY-BASED programs to submit proposals, and they do NOT expect hard core scientific writing as a result. [does this mean communities can’t be expected to do hard-core science or that hard-core scientists aren’t expected to write?]

This is a GREAT opportunity with plenty of lead time for folks to think about a project and its focus, using one of the objectives below identified in Healthy People 2010. Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2006; see below for application information. Grants.gov is not being utilized because these are awards, not grants.

Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply, including community-based organizations and agencies, minority-based organizations, schools, faith-based organizations, civic and fraternal groups, community clinics, local Agencies on Aging, and local health departments and agencies. Universities and university-affiliates, such as medical centers, schools of optometry and ophthalmology, are precluded from receiving an award directly, but are welcome to collaborate with community-based organizations. Each award is not to exceed $10,000. Applications for 2007 must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service no later than Thursday, August 31, 2006. The final selection of award recipients will be based on the evaluation score, geographic and racial/ethnic representation, and project innovation. Awards will be announced in January 2007.
