Where Health Matters Grant Program

Attention: Due to existing multi-year grant commitments, Where Health Matters Grants will not be awarded in 2022.

The Where Health Matters Grant Program is part of Health New England’s overall Community Benefits Giving program that looks to advance the health and well-being of vulnerable population groups living in Western and Central Massachusetts.

We fund evidence-based community programs that address one or more of the areas of our funding priorities and at least one health issue area or identified health priority area (social determinants of health) defined by the Attorney General Community Benefits Nonprofit HMO Guidelines

For additional insights into our priority funding areas, please refer to the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment for Health New England. Additional detailed information on the social determinants of health, which have been adopted by the Attorney General Community Benefits Guidelines, can be found in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Determination of Need Health Priorities Guidelines.
