New Community Grant Cycle Announcement: 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.  To learn more about the grant guidelines and important dates, click here


Bellingham Community Garden Opening: We would like to congratulate the Hockomock YMCA and the Town of Bellingham for their community garden ribbon cutting ceremony on May 3, 2018! The Hockomock YMCA was awarded a CHNA 6 grant to address the CHIP priority area of Chronic Disease and Health Promotion. We would like to thank two of our Steering Committee members for attending the ceremony on behalf of CHNA 6, Christine Mateer and Kim Mu-Chow. We look forward to hearing about the future growth of the garden and all the local healthy options being grown for the community! For Milford Daily News article, click here.
