Community Mobilization and Innovation Funds

Part of moving to a community-led model is empowering the community to take action in addressing opportunities in their own neighborhoods. This bucket of funding is reserved for residents and neighborhood organizations who want to implement solutions to promote maternal and infant vitality, provide social support and healing, and build community.

Aligned Activities for Priority Areas

This grant category is for projects that align with FLOURISH’s priorities and racial equity approach to promote policy and systems change. These priority areas were determined by the FLOURISH Community Leaders Cabinet, a body of more than 30 community members with lived experience representing high impact zip codes. Grant funding will be offered in the following priority areas: Coordinated Quality Care, Safe Sleep, and Social Determinants of Health (Housing and Transportation). Please note: The amount of funding available is best suited for shorter-term investments that enable organizations and collaborative partners to seek longer-term, sustainable funding from another source.

Capacity–Building in Racial Equity

Organizations in St. Louis are at varying levels in their understanding and application of racial equity. FLOURISH is committed to investing dollars in racial justice trainings and other initiatives that help prepare people to take on this important work. These may include FLOURISH-hosted trainings, or funding to hold racial equity trainings within your own organization.
