是的. 总体而言，资金的竞争将更加激烈, 因为我们有了更多的关注点, 包括行为健康和健康的社会决定因素. 也, we are conducting outreach 和 building relationships throughout Colorado to ensure that we are having local 和 statewide impact. 我们希望这将导致新的伙伴关系和更广泛的范围. 我们会收到更多来自科罗拉多的申请, 我们预计资金将更具竞争力.
Our strategy will help bring health in reach for all Coloradans by strengthening bodies, minds 和 communities in the fight against unfair 和 avoidable differences in health.
- 保持健康的身体: Having access to comprehensive primary care 和 ample opportunities to be active are two important building blocks to a healthy life. We are working to ensure that all Coloradans have access to high-quality, comprehensive primary care when 和 where they need it 和 that children can be active in a safe 和 fun way every day. 阅读更多关于这个重点领域的优先事项，包括 初级护理 和 孩子多运动.
- 培养健康心智: We underst和 the urgency of providing Coloradans – of every age – with the resources they need to support mental 和 social well-being. We are addressing the behavioral health needs of our state by fostering the social-emotional development of children, 为青少年和年轻成年人提供韧性技能, 和 giving adults – with mental health disorders 和 substance abuse challenges – continued support on their recovery journey. 阅读更多关于这个重点领域的优先事项，包括 Early Childhood Social-Emotional Development, Teen 和 Young Adult Resiliency 和 成人复苏.
- 加强社区卫生: We believe communities deserve the opportunity to elevate their strengths 和 solve for challenges alongside partners who show up 和 underst和 the issues they face. By partnering with communities as they identify 和 tackle health-related challenges, 投资高质量的食品和经济适用房, we are creating a foundation for which communities can develop locally-specific solutions that lead to health equity. 阅读更多关于这个重点领域的优先事项，包括 社区解决方案、粮食获取与安全 和 经济适用房.
- 冠军卫生公平: 让公平成为现实, voices must be heard 和 skills developed to promote fair opportunities for all Coloradans to be healthy. We are supporting individuals 和 organizations as they develop 和 strengthen the skills necessary to advocate for 和 promote a more equitable health environment—one where our policies reflect our priorities, 所有伟德直营都能获得健康. 阅读更多关于这个重点领域的优先事项，包括 宣传 和 能力建设.
We also have long-term cross-cutting work that spans multiple priorities, so we can work deeply within a specific geographic or subject area. 这些长期的努力需要更多的关注和投资, which means that we are careful to take on only a few of these at a time. 目前，伟德直营考虑我们现有的 健康的学校 和新 关注本地 工作的主体是交叉的.
We recognize that by partnering in communities across the state who are part of our 关注本地 signature effort, that we can not only move the needle on specific health-related issues, but that we have an opportunity to build the capacity of local institutions, 完善政策制度, 扩大地方领导，促进广泛的公民参与. 我们将在这四个社区着手, 激动人心的路径包括Alamosa, 伊格尔县和摩根县, as well as Pueblo County with a specific focus on the city of Pueblo.
Having health in reach means something different for every Coloradan 和 every community, 因为不是所有人都有同样的机会.
为了解决这个问题, we need two things: a broad vision 和 to dig deeply into issues that are often overlooked 和 therefore need the most attention. With that in mind, 和 after listening to voices across the state, we have refined our focus areas.
By working in partnership with communities 和 others serving the Coloradans who need the most, we can ensure that each of us has all we need in order to live healthy lives.
简而言之，为了更深刻的影响. 我们的重点领域和优先事项越明确, 我们就能对我们服务的人产生更深远的影响. By centering our approach to be more specific about who we support, 我们支持什么，如何支持, 我们将对人民产生更深刻的影响, 我们州的家庭和社区最需要它.
