The following announcement was provided by Tufts Health Plan:
Tufts Health Plan Foundation announced Momentum Fund mini-grants of up to $10,000 are available to advance age-friendly and dementia-friendly work in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. These one-year awards are designed to build on community experiences and insights as they advance age- and dementia-friendly cities and towns.
“The strongest ideas for engaging on aging issues come from community,” said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president for corporate citizenship at Tufts Health Plan. “Our desire is to ensure these resources support those ideas.”
As the only regional funder focused exclusively on healthy aging, Tufts Health Plan Foundation works to strengthen and support communities to help them become great places to grow up and grow old. Since 2008, it has given nearly $34 million to community organizations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. The Foundation will begin funding in Connecticut this year.
To inform decision making, review proposals and make recommendations for funding, the Foundation has convened local committees in each state. Learn more about the Momentum Fund at https://www.tuftshealthplanfoundation.org.
