Healthy Aging Grants Program: Health & Wellness

November 4, 2013       The NonProfit Times      



The Tufts Health Plan Foundation’s Healthy Aging Grants Program seeks to fund programs that help older adults live healthier lives. The Program is divided into three categories: Health & Wellness, Purposeful Engagement, and Empowerment. The Health & Wellness category focuses on promoting chronic disease self-management and prevention, exercise and nutrition, and mobility, strength and balance for older adults.

Since the foundation began focusing its grantmaking on healthy aging, it has given nearly $12 million to nonprofits that elevate the physical, mental and emotional well-being of older adults and their caregivers. Cycle 1, 2013 grants included $1.6 million in new funding to 34 Massachusetts and Rhode Island-based organizations.
