Grants to Central Massachusets nonprofit organizations and government agencies for collaborative projects that address health issues in eligible counties. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support projects that serve the most vulnerable residents of Central Massachusetts.
Central Massachusets consists generally of the 60 cities and towns comprising Worcester County and the contiguous communities of Ashby, Ashland, Ayer, Bellingham, Boxborough, Brimfield, Holland, Holliston, Hopkinton, Hudson, Littleton, Marlboro, Medway, New Salem, Orange, Palmer, Shirley, Stow, Townsend, Ware and Warwick.
The Health Care and Health Promotion Synergy Initiative provides three to five years of funding for collaborative projects that target health issues in Central Massachusetts with integrated, comprehensive strategies designed to redress the disparities by enhancing systemic access to care and promoting healthier lifestyles. Grantees may identify targeted populations geographically (e.g., neighborhoods or communities), demographically (e.g., 0 to 3 year olds, frail elderly, Latinos) and/or categorically (e.g., incidence of cardiovascular disease, homelessness, caregivers). These projects typically begin with funding for a planning grant, followed by a pilot grant, and then one to three years of implementation grants, during which time the emphasis shifts to advocacy and sustainability of the project.
Key criteria for successful Synergy Initiative projects include:
- Significance of the Problem
- Level of Integration
- The Soundness of the Approach
- The Capacity for Enduring Systems Change
- The Potential for Impact
- The Potential for Replication
- Quality of the Evaluation Plan
- Exit Strategy
