Mini-grants build on local momentum
Forty community-based organizations each will receive a Momentum Fund mini-grant of up to $10,000 from Tufts Health Plan Foundation. Nearly $400,000 will support community-led healthy aging work in four New England states.
Now in its second year, the fund was established to foster promising ideas and support cities and towns in their efforts to make their communities better places to grow up and grow old. This is the first year Connecticut nonprofits will receive Momentum Fund mini-grants.
"These mini-grants make it possible for organizations to build on community insights," said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president of corporate citizenship at Tufts Health Plan. "We know the best ideas come from cities and towns as they reimagine aging."
