chna 7/CHNA 20 multi-year grant

The Blue Hills Community Health Alliance (CHNA 20), in collaboration with CHNA 7 MetroWest, is pleased to offer a multi-year funding opportunity to qualifying organizations within our service areas.

There is $120,000 available in grant funding in this two-year funding cycle. Awards ranging from $15,000 - $30,000 (per year) may support programs, events and sustainable change projects, which will serve and benefit CHNA 7 and/or CHNA 20 communities and their residents for the project period of April 1, 2018 to April 30, 2020. Distribution of Year Two funds will be based on achieving agreed upon benchmarks in Year One. Funding requests must be for two years. 

After careful review of regional health needs assessment data and consideration of recent initiatives, CHNAs 20 and 7 have identified behavioral health and chronic disease as the two priority areas. We invite proposals that address behavioral health and/or chronic disease and focus on one or more of the following strategies:

  • Health Education and Promotion
  • Environmental Changes (including socioeconomic and cultural)
  • Risk and Protective Factors
