21 organizations to receive first $500K of $1M committed by Foundation to address pressing needs in face of coronavirus
Tufts Health Plan Foundation has identified the first 21 organizations to receive
support from the $1 million it has committed
to community efforts on behalf of older people affected by coronavirus in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
"This first wave of funding addresses one of the most pressing concerns facing older people-food insecurity," said Tom Croswell, Tufts Health Plan president and CEO. "These organizations are working on the front lines to meet critical needs and are well-positioned to respond to emerging priorities. Our communities depend on them, now more than ever."
The organizations include area agencies on aging that provide meals and other support services to older people, food banks, and community organizations that are serving as hubs for collaborative regional responses.
