Birth Equity Fund request for applications—Opportunity for Pierce County community-based organizations
Washington State Department of Health developed the Birth Equity Project to invest in community programming to improve birth outcomes for Black, African American, Pacific Islander, and American Indian and Alaska Native women and infants in Washington. DOH is offering funds for projects that serve and benefit black birthing families.
Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department is providing technical expertise to Department of Health. We have contracted with Jackie Vaughn to form the Community Advisory Committee, made up of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) birthing community who will guide these projects.
This group is comprised of Washington residents from the Black/African American community who live and work in various counties—including Pierce—who will help provide direction about how to best invest the funds.
