Defined Terms:

Non-profit Organizations are organizations that have capacity, content expertise, and access to other funding and resources to support the overall initiative that can help improve a community’s health.

A Grassroot Community Organization is defined as: “people who are drawn together by something that they have in common that has both personal and community consequences and grant themselves the authority to solve the problem they are facing or create the future they desire.” Grassroot Community organizations often have the most sensitive understanding of the challenges, priorities among affected communities, and the solutions most likely to be embraced and sustained. Therefore, the grassroots community organizations should be financially compensated for their time, community capital and resources.
