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. Health New England will award three grants to non-profit community organizations; one organization will be awarded per focus area. Applicants have the option to apply for a 12-18 month grant or multi-year grant.
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.
This year, we are interested in non-profit community organizations that collaborate with other community partners in the innovative delivery of programs that improve the health of people who live and work in our communities. Our focus areas for funding include:
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.
All applicants are asked to submit a Letter of Intent and complete the Request for Proposal (RFP) grant application, in additional to all supporting documentation. Only complete submissions made online will be considered. Only one application per non-profit organization will be accepted in each funding year. Non-profit organizations will only be eligible for funding once from Health New England in a calendar year.
