HEALTH COMPASS GRANT (up to $7,500)

The South Shore Community Partners in Prevention (CHNA 23), in collaboration with Blue Hills Community Health Alliance (CHNA 20) and the Greater Brockton Healthcare Alliance (CHNA 22), launched an exciting new database for health statistics called the South Shore Health Compass. This FREE resource is a searchable database of a wide array of health data by town, county, or CHNA service area. The Compass can be accessed HERE or by going to www.southshorehealthcompass.org.

In an effort to promote the use of the Health Compass, and to encourage effective programs to combat some of the health problems described by the data, we are funding the use of promising practices as listed in the Compass. Agencies, organizations and individuals within our region who wish to implement a promising practice that addresses a health problem in our region may apply for up to $7,500 towards the implementation of that program.

If your grant is accepted, you will need to complete the “Outcomes Report Form” (located at the bottom of this page) highlighting the impact that the grant had on your program/project.
