Bow St., Milford, MA 01757). We will be having a special presentation from Robin Currie with the Massachusetts Coalition to End Human Trafficking and the Not for Sale Campaign. In addition, we will be be announcing more information on the Fall 2019 Grant Cycle, which will allow for more simplified proposals up to $10,000.00. The grant proposal must address one of the four goals:

  1. Create healthier communities and prevent chronic disease by improving nutrition and increasing physical activity.
  2. Increase emotional health across the lifespan and build an accepting community for those who are affected by mental health and substance use issues.
  3. Promote non-violent behaviors across the life-span.
  4. Increase availability, knowledge, and use of services and resources that promote health, wellness, and access for vulnerable populations in CHNA 6 communities.

Hope to see you there!
