Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln receives the majority of funding for our initiatives through national and local foundations and health organizations including:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln major multi-year grants beginning with the Partnerships in Community Health (PICH) grant in 2014.  In 2018, the CDC awarded Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln a five-year, $3.3 million Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) grant, one of only 31 awarded nationally. This award helped support coordinated health improvement projects that addressed significant disparities in health outcomes within Lincoln’s minority communities and low income neighborhoods, through nutrition, physical activity, and aligning healthcare providers and community outreach efforts to connect patients with health resources.

Community Health Endowment of Lincoln (CHE) works to make Lincoln the healthiest community in the nation. To achieve this vision, CHE invests in health-related projects and programs and convenes the community around important health issues.  CHE has provided ongoing funding for Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln initiatives since 2010.


The mission of
CHI Health St. Elizabeth is to educate, heal, and provide resources for the planning, development and implementation of new healthy community initiatives. 
 Beginning in 2010, as part of their commitment to building a healthier community, CHI has provided Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln with an annual gift in support of our health initiatives.



The Nebraska Department of Education has provided Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln funding since 2016 in support of our school wellness program, WeCook.  WeCook promotes physical fitness and teaches at-risk youth and their families how to cook simple, healthy foods and learn more about gardening.
