The Community Health Endowment of Lincoln (CHE) is a municipal endowment that is dedicated to making Lincoln the healthiest community in the nation. CHE invests in health-related projects and convenes the community around health issues, improving the well-being of people with the greatest risk of poor health outcomes. Following its creation in 1998, the endowment has returned nearly $37 million in grants back to the community.
Since 2015 and in partnership with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department, CHE has mapped trends that impact the health outcomes of Lincoln’s population. These maps, called Place Matters, provide data that influences decision-making, budget allocation, project development, community activism, and strategic planning. The most recent maps are available on the CHE website.
