Tufts Health Plan Foundation - Policy and Advocacy*
- Rhode Island
Maximum Grant Amount
The Tufts Health Plan Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for its Policy and Advocacy cycle of community investments. Grants will run from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
The Foundation is looking for ideas that will move communities toward accomplishing the World Health Organization’s standards for Age-friendly Communities. Topic areas considered in Policy and Advocacy include:
* Built environment
* Social and civic participation and inclusion
* Communication and information
* Community support and health services
Proposed policy and advocacy efforts should be collaborative and involve participants from all community arenas.
Community and Civic Engagement:
The Foundation will support nonprofits that address or support issues/actions that lead to changes in the communities they serve. Activities can include (1) convening diverse stakeholders, (2) planning, and (3) engaging in policy activities that can lead to healthy communities and age-friendly cities.
Access to Programs and Services:
Improved access to programs and services — transportation, housing, food access, etc.— by all members of a community, including older adults, will lead to a better quality of life. More information and greater awareness about how older adults can participate in improving their lives, health, and wellbeing is also necessary. The Foundation will support activities that improve access.
The Foundation prioritizes activities that serve older adults living in underserved areas of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and who are at risk economically and socially.
