Fallon Community Health Plan Accepting Grant Applications

Saturday, May 05, 2012

 

Fallon Community Health Plan (FCHP) has just announced that it will award over $100,000 in grants to local programs.

FCHP is accepting applications now and is looking for innovative, community-based programs to award grant money to. It will focus on programs aiming to improve access to good nutrition, promote physical activity, and provide health services for seniors or preventative health care for children under the age of five.

The goal of these grants is to strengthen local organizations, and Kimberly Salmon, Director of Community Relations for FCHP, hopes that the money will help these groups add new and important programs.

“As a mission-focused organization, FCHP has a strong tradition of supporting the communities it serves,” Salmon said. “Through our Community Benefits Grants program, we have the opportunity to provide funding to organizations so they can strengthen current programs, or support new, innovative programs.”

Grants will be given out to new or existing programs that serve the populations of Berkshire, Bristol, Essex, Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden, Middlesex, Norfolk, Northern Plymouth and Worcester counties. Organizations eligible for grant money include, but are not limited to non-profit health agencies, public schools and community health centers.

"(Applicants) stand out if they have a program that is new and innovative," Salmon said. "Another thing that makes them stand out is if they show us that their idea is sustainable beyond our initial support."

Some of last year’s grant recipients include the Boys and Girls Club of Worcester, Community Teamwork Inc., Rachel’s Table and Genesis Club. Each of these organizations has used that money to improve the well being of its community in some way.

Salmon stressed that applicants should use FCHP as a resource when writing grant proposals, and that applicants should feel free to contact them.

"The one thing I want people to know is that we really are a resource," Salmon said. "We encourage people to reach out to us. If you're writing a grant, feel free to contact us to make sure you're going in the right direction."

Fallon Community Health Plan is a not-for-profit health care service organization that looks to support the diverse and changing needs of all those it serves. For more information on FHCP, click here.
