New investments focus on engaging older people in solutions

Tufts Health Plan Foundation today announced 10 new grants totaling $1.325 million. They demonstrate the Foundation’s commitment to advancing policies and practices that support healthy aging.

“We are seeing trends—notably food insecurity and the need to ensure our long-term services and supports system advances healthy aging,” said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president for corporate citizenship at Tufts Health Plan. “We’ve seen the consequences of generations of systemic racism; we hope these grants will create space to listen to and hear older people as they promote policy solutions that make sense for all of us.”

Tufts Health Plan Foundation is the only regional funder exclusively focused on healthy aging. The new grants engage older people in systems-level change to remove barriers responsible for inequities in communities across the region.
