The LGBTQ+ Health Initiative invites interested New Yorkers from anywhere in the state to apply to be a member of the Community Advisory Board, or CAB. This advisory board is open to employees of the NYS HHS Network organizations and to the general public, with a strong preferance for members of LGBQ+, TGNCNB, and/or BIPOC communities. This CAB will help ensure the LGBTQ+ Health Initiative's work is representative of all New Yorkers.

Scope of Work:

The mission of the LGBTQ+ Health Initiative is to reduce disparities experienced by gender and sexually diverse populations by helping health and human services agencies that are a part of the NYS HHS LGBT Network more effectively reach and serve these groups. For more information, please visit our website

Members of the CAB will help inform the LGBTQ+ Health Initiative's work by:

  • Reviewing drafts of plans and materials and providing suggestions to make sure they are inclusive and sensitive to differences in race, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation
  • Discuss the overall direction and goals for the grant
  • Successes and areas for improvement

We are looking for CAB members with diverse backgrounds and experiences who:

  • Live or work in New York State
  • Are members of the LGBTQ+ community
  • Are committed to improving the health and wellness of LGBTQ+ New Yorkers

To apply for the CAB, please complete the survey below.

Thank you!
