Mini-grants for safe sleep outreach are available from our friends at SID Network of Ohio. These grants are perfect for neighborhood and community groups looking to reduce the risks of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and other sleep-related causes of infant death. Funds should be used for educational initiatives in the state of Ohio that work to promote infant safe sleep practices and increase public awareness regarding the impact of sleep-related deaths and ways to reduce these incidences.

Examples of community programs to be considered for a mini-grant include, but are not limited to:

  • Infant safe sleep demonstrations
  • Infant safe sleep trainings and workshops
  • Infant safe sleep community awareness events
  • Infant safe sleep community “baby showers” (awareness event with educational resources and prize giveaways)
  • SIDS Sunday awareness event organized by churches

Applications are due Monday, April 27, 2015. More information and the application can be found here.
