On June 1, Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee awarded 23 area organizations over $230,000 in grants for this year’s Phase I awards. These grants will be used to plan community health-related projects competing for Phase II implementation grants later this year. Seventy-six proposals were received from regional nonprofits and were ranked on impact and merit by the Trinity board. Issues addressed include physical and behavioral healthy life choices, neighborhood/community strengthening, spiritual health and unity of the community, and open topics. These groups will use the Phase I funding to research and plan details for project operations and sustainability, culminating in a proposal for consideration of Phase II implementation funds. View project descriptions and photos in the Awards Gallery.
