Five community organizations receive grants through Tufts Health Plan Employee recommendations
 
Five diverse community organizations will receive grants to help address the COVID-19 pandemic from Tufts Health Plan Foundation through a program engaging Tufts Health Plan employees in grantmaking. The organizations, with missions ranging from serving people experiencing homelessness to supporting veterans and LGBTQ+ youth, will each receive $10,000 in funding.

"While physical distancing is keeping us apart, our employees are still finding ways to show their commitment to community," said Tufts Health Plan President and CEO Tom Croswell, who also serves on the Tufts Health Plan Foundation board of directors.

The grants were made through a program involving Tufts Health Plan's five business resource groups (BRGs). Each BRG recommended an organization aligned with its affinity. The Foundation doubled the funding available for this year's grants, recognizing community organizations need additional resources as they find new ways to deliver services and supports while addressing an increase in demand during the coronavirus pandemic.

Complete your Census online, by phone or mail
Once a decade, America comes t ogether t o par ticipate in the decennial census. For the first time, people can respond online and by phone, in addition to the mail-in option.
 
A complete and accurate count of all people will help our communities when we come back together. Many states are reporting lower participation than usual. While the Census Bureau is extending the deadline, there is no need to delay your response.
 
Respond online, by phone or by mail--and encourage family, friends and neighbors to do the same. Everyone counts. 
 
Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by age, race and other factors. Responding to the census helps our communities get their fair share of the more than $675 billion per year in federal funds spent on area agencies on aging, schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs. 
 
The Census Bureau is required to keep respondent information confidential.
