The mission of the Tufts Health Plan Foundation is to improve the health and wellness of the diverse communities it serves, with a focus on healthy aging and honoring and supporting communities working to be great places to grow up and grow old.
To advance this mission, the foundation is inviting Letters of Intent for policy and advocacy grants. Policy and advocacy initiatives eligible for consideration include built environment, transportation, housing, social and civic participation and inclusion, employment, communication and information, and community support and health services.
Proposals may focus on:
Community and Civic Engagement — Including the convening of diverse stakeholders, planning activities, and policy activities that can lead to healthy communities and age-friendly cities.
Access to Programs and Services — Improved access to programs and services that help a community work (transportation, housing, food access, etc.) for all members, including older people. Policies and initiatives that connect community members of all ages to services and lead to vibrant and healthy outcomes, as well as those that provide more information and greater awareness about how older people can participate in improving their lives, health, and well-being.
To be eligible, applicants must be located in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Connecticut.
Letters of Intent are due July 24. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by September 25, 2020.
