The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) is currently seeking applications for the second cycle of the 2019 Community Health Grant Awards program. Grant awards of up to $5,000 are made to GAFP member affiliated community organizations that support GHFA program priorities including underserved populations and community programs that promote healthy practices consistent with the principles of Family Medicine.
