The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts is inviting new grant applications for its Activation Fund in 2017.
The Activation Fund supports discrete, one-year projects in Central Massachusetts that demonstrate creative and innovative approaches to addressing community health concerns; move an organization to its next level of capacity and effectiveness, which can be sustained beyond the term of the grant; or explore emerging health challenges and opportunities. Activation Fund grants range from approximately $10,000 to $100,000. In 2015, the average grant was around $71,000.
Those interested in applying for a 2017 Activation Fund grant should visit www.hfcm.org and meet with Amie Shei, VP for Programs, to assess the fit of a proposed project with the Activation Fund guidelines before submitting a Letter of Intent. Key dates for the 2017 Activation Fund grant cycle are:
