Health Equity

In October 2017, RMHF's 18 Equity + Health Fellows charged the Foundation to utilize its full range of tools to be a catalyst and champion for greater health and racial equity in the Richmond region and articulated an aggressive outcomes-focused agenda for change.

In June 2018, RMHF names a second class of Fellows with a new focus on grassroots neighborhood and community-based leaders.

Health Equity in Action

Through the Health Equity and Arts, or HEArts program, nonprofit organizations working with individual artists or a collective of artists will receive grants up to $20,000 each that will support participation in a one-year engagement to use various forms of art and creative expression to engage community residents around issues of health and housing equity.
