HEALTH LITERACY/ BEHAVIORAL HEALTH / SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH GRANT (up to $10,000)

Based on the results of a Community Health Assessment, SSCPP’s has decided to focus its attention on Health Literacy, Behavioral Health, and the Social Determinants of Health, particularly around access to health care and the needs of special and vulnerable populations.

All projects must benefit one or more of the 11 communities in the South Shore Community Partners in Prevention Community Health Network Area (CHNA 23).

Health Literacy: In order to meet the goals of the Initiative’s Action Plan, SSCPP will allocate funds to support member agencies, partners and other groups who are undertaking projects directly in support of the plan’s goals and objectives. Please review the plan here.

Social Determinants of Health (SDOH): The Massachusetts Department of Health defines Social Determinants of Health as “the social, economic, behavioral, and physical factors that we experience where we work, live, and play make up the majority of what impacts our health. These include Education, Employment, Housing Insecurity, Food Insecurity and Violence.

Behavioral health, including mental health and substance use disorders has emerged as an issue of national and local concern, as the complex nature of managing and treating these conditions presents challenges for the health care system, as well as individuals, families, and communities. Mental health conditions and substance use disorders can be challenging conditions on their own; for many patients, these health issues are intertwined in complicated ways. In recent years, mental health issues and substance use disorders have reached crisis levels. SSCPP may provide funding to nonprofit entities working on innovative programming in the behavioral health setting, including initiatives focused on mental health and substance use disorders.

Please note, for profit ventures will not be considered.
