2019 Fall Community Grants:

The Greater Milford Community Health Network Area (CHNA 6) is committed to working with municipalities and nonprofit organizations to improve the health of the region.  In recent years, CHNA 6 has offered grants to address specific objectives of the 2015 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).  This “collective impact” strategy will allow for lasting social change around health issues identified as part of the Community Health Assessment.    


The CHNA 6 Steering Committee recognizes that valuable community projects may fit with the overall priorities of the CHIP but do not address specific objectives and strategies.  The Community Grants Program was designed to support these projects, with a special emphasis on smaller community-based and/or grassroots organizations.   

In keeping with the recommendations of its 2015 Community Health Improvement Plan,  CHNA 6 is pleased to solicit proposals from eligible nonprofit and government organizations for the following four CHIP Priority Areas (to review the CHIP, click here):

  1. Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion: To create healthier communities and prevent chronic disease by improving nutrition and increasing physical activity.
  2. Mental Health and Substance Use: To increase emotional health across the lifespan and build an accepting community for those who are affected by mental health and substance use issues.
  3. Violence Prevention: To promote non-violent behaviors across the lifespan.
  4. Access: To Increase availability, knowledge, and use of services and resources that promote health, wellness, and access for vulnerable populations in CHNA 6 communities.
