AMHC now accepting sponsorship applications for health events hosted during Minority Health Awareness Month

Posted: January 19, 2021

The Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) is now accepting sponsorship applications for health-related events to be hosted April 1 through April 30, 2021, during Minority Health Awareness Month.

To apply, applicants must download and complete all required documents, which can be found on AMHC’s website at arminorityhealth.com/resources/funding-opportunities.  

Applications must be submitted via email to Onekia Freeman at Onekia.Freeman@arkansas.gov by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 15. Any applications received after this date and time will not be accepted.

It is the intent of the AMHC to collaborate with community-based organizations, schools, faith-based organizations and others to address health problems that disproportionately affect minorities in Arkansas. In an effort to facilitate the development of new and innovative approaches to promote health and prevent disease in these communities, the AMHC regularly offers sponsorships in a competitive application process.

The Arkansas Minority Health Commission works to assure that all minority Arkansans have equitable access to preventive health care and seeks ways to promote health and prevent diseases and conditions that are prevalent among minority populations.
