Public Policy and Advocacy Strategies

Public policy engagement is a key strategy for ensuring sustainable improvements in population health. As a result, health philanthropy plays a vital and unique role in the public policy process. GIH works to build understanding between health grantmakers and policymakers, and supports grantmakers in their efforts to advance policy change.

Issue Spotlight

June 2018

This updated resource from the Funders' Committee for Civic Participation provides a clear timeline of Census operations and activities based on the very latest announcements from the Census Bureau.

April 2018

The Funders' Committee for Civic Participation has released a fact sheet on important steps funders can take now (April -June 2018) to support the Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA). From March 1-June 30 of this year, state and local governments around the U.S. will review and correct the Census Bureau’s master address list for their jurisdictions. Funders can have a major impact on work toward a fair and accurate Census 2020 by supporting partnerships between city or county governments and local grassroots community-based organizations to identify and add to the Master Address File (MAF) the unconventional housing units that are missing from both Census Bureau and local records.
