The Nebraska Legislature appropriates funds for the purpose of implementing a minority health initiative in counties with minority populations of five percent or greater in the first and third Congressional Districts as determined by the most recent federal decennial census (Nebraska State Statute 71-1628.07).  Per the United States Census, minority populations include Black/African American, American Indian/Native American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Other, Two or more Races, and Hispanic populations. 
 
The emphasis of this program is to enable organizations to better address the goal of health equity for minority populations. Partnerships are encouraged to further gain the benefits of synergy.  When a network of partners submits an application, each partner should submit a letter of commitment identifying the portion of the project for which they are responsible and their agreement to participate.
 
Projects must demonstrate cultural competence in their design, and focus on one of the following:
  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Infant mortality
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
