The pandemic amplified the needs of access to health care, and having enough health care facilities in an area. COVID-19 affected everyone, including people in more rural and remote areas. As a result, the circumstances of the pandemic caused lockdowns and increased unemployment, leading to weight gain and financial stress among other issues.
Issues like food insecurity, risk of homelessness and mental health became more pronounced. Nonprofits like food banks, community clinics and other organizations worked to pick up the slack. Grant funds can help fill the gaps when it comes to important initiatives, programs and outreach. They can help improve the health of communities by funding community gardens, nutrition initiatives and health-related programs.
We at GrantWatch understand the value in sharing these five medical and health grants.
