DASH Community Impact Contracts – Strategic, Timely, Actionable, Replicable, Targeted (CIC-START) aims to help local collaborations catalyze their efforts to share and use multi-sector data to improve community health. DASH CIC-START funds contracts of up to $25,000 to support time-limited activities that build local collaborations’ skills and capacity at the community or regional level to take meaningful steps toward planning or implementing multi-sector data systems.
DASH Mentor Program
The DASH Mentor Program supports experienced organizations to create opportunities that foster learning and implementation for small groups of “mentees.” Each cohort is led by a Mentor and comprised of communities that share a common interest in improving their local capacity to share multi-sector data as it relates to a particular topic area. Thirty-two mentees have been selected for six cohorts.
DASH Original Grantees
In February 2016, DASH awarded ten grants, totaling $2 million, to support projects that improve health through multi-sector data sharing collaborations. These DASH grantees received up to $200,000 each to develop and implement multi-sector data sharing projects addressing a range of public health challenges over the course of 18 months.
