On June 1, Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee awarded 23 area organizations $200,000 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. Close to seventy proposals were received from regional nonprofits and were ranked on impact and merit by the Trinity board. Issues addressed include community partnerships to address behavioral and mental health wellness and addiction, youth health initiatives: mental health/addiction/ACEs, access to housing, access to care for vulnerable populations, serving the servants, 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.
