Description

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation is accepting applications for one-year grants from Massachusetts organizations, through the Special Initiatives program.

Grants will support nonprofits seeking to make a positive impact on health or health care access in Massachusetts for people with low-income and residents of Massachusetts who have been economically, socially, ethnically, or racially marginalized.  These activities must be aligned with the Foundation's strategic priorities to promote access to quality care and coverage, promote access to behavioral health services, and eliminate structural racism and racial inequities in health. 

Key activities may include:
  • Developing an innovative pilot or demonstration project that responds to the health-related needs of the community as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic or racial inequities
  • Evaluating and/or deepening organizational changes implemented due to the pandemic or the recent racial justice movement that seek to make a positive impact on health or health care access for economically, socially, ethnically and racially marginalized clients
  • Demonstration or pilot programs that are aligned with the Foundation’s strategic priorities to promote access to quality care and coverage, behavioral health services, and eliminate structural racism and racial inequity in health for economically, socially, ethnically and racially marginalized residents of the Commonwealth, but which are outside of the scope of an existing Foundation grant program. 

Eligible Applicants and Selection Process
In reviewing proposals for Special Initiatives grants, the Foundation will only consider those organizations that primarily serve people with low-income and people who have been socially, economically or racially marginalized. The Foundation will prioritize applications from organizations led by People of Color. Organizations that have not been funded recently by the foundation will be given priority.
