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.
