Special Initiatives

Special Initiatives grants provide one-time non-renewable support of up to $50,000 for a twelve-month period. These grants support innovative initiatives in Massachusetts that expand access to health care for low-income consumers, and complement the objectives of the Foundation’s other grant programs, including synergies between grantmaking and policy initiatives. The Foundation’s priorities are to protect the availability of coverage and care for the most vulnerable people in the state, and to support linkages between social services and health care that help to improve outcomes for residents.
