Grants to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island nonprofit organizations for projects that promote community inclusivity for senior citizens and vulnerable populations. LOIs are due July 20. Consideration will be given to projects carried out by community leaders working with multiple stakeholders to achieve a common goal.

This work could include current or new activities that directly or indirectly lead to age-friendly communities and address barriers to success in the most vulnerable communities. The Foundation will consider the intersection between policy and practice as well as collaborative community work in the built environment, transportation, housing, social and civic participation and inclusion, employment, communication and information, and community support and health services.

The grant cycle runs from January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018. Multi-year proposals will be considered.

The Tufts Health Plan Foundation invests in communities through grants to nonprofit organizations whose work considers healthy living with a focus on healthy aging.
