In pursuit of our mission, the Advancing Wellness grants program includes four grantmaking portfolios:
The establishment of these portfolios is grounded in research on the social determinants of health, which states that where people live and work, their race or ethnicity, and their income can impact their health and wellness. Our desire is to help level the playing field so that everyone has access to good-paying jobs, safe neighborhoods and quality health care services.
Building on our past, we remain committed to the Wellness Approach: responsive, statewide grantmaking; core operating support; funding of direct services, public policy and capacity building; and prioritizing the health of underserved populations.
