The Tufts Health Plan Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for its Systems and Best Practices cycle of community investments. With its new focus, the Foundation is looking for ideas that will move communities toward accomplishing the World Health Organization’s standards for Age-friendly Communities. The Foundation will fund activities in the areas of Health and Wellness, Workforce Development, Purposeful Engagement, and Field and Capacity Building that will:

  • Improve or build systems to support healthy living with an emphasis on the systems that are serving older adults,
  • Bring organizations together to work collaboratively to achieve broader impact and change, and/or
  • Scale efforts to address community needs.

The Foundation prioritizes activities that serve older adults living in under-served areas of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and who are at risk economically and socially. Grants will run from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.
