Massachusetts Special Initiatives Grants
Massachusetts Special Initiatives Grants provide funding for activities that expand access to healthcare for low-income and vulnerable people in Massachusetts by:
- Developing an innovative pilot or demonstration project that responds to the health-related needs of the community as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and/or racial inequities
- Evaluating and/or deepening organizational changes implemented due to the pandemic or the recent racial justice movement that seek to make a positive impact on health or healthcare access for economically, socially, ethnically, and racially marginalized clients
- Demonstration or pilot programs that are aligned with the Foundation's strategic priorities to promote access to quality care and coverage, behavioral health services, and eliminate structural racism and racial inequity in health for economically, socially, ethnically and racially marginalized residents of the Commonwealth, but which are outside of the scope of an existing Foundation grant program.
Eligible applicants are nonprofit organizations in Massachusetts that primarily serve low-income people who have been socially, economically or racially marginalized. Priority will be given to applications from organizations led by people of color.
Award ceiling: $25,000
Project period: 1 year
