Grants Awarded to GLHA

2020 Grants Awarded to the GLHA

In addition to distributing grant funds to frontline organizations, the Alliance was the recipient of three 2020 grants to address unmet healthcare needs in Greater  Lowell.

  • Massachusetts COVID-19 Relief Fund. The Greater
    Lowell Community Foundation awarded this grant to the
    GLHA to purchase and distribute personal protection
    equipment (PPE) to more than thirty nonprofit
    organizations, schools, and municipalities to benefit
    under-served populations.
  • Boston Medical Center’s HEALing Communities Study.
    The GLHA is serving as the fiscal agent for this multi-site
    implementation research study, which will test the impact
    of an integrated set of evidence-based practices
    across health care, behavioral health, justice, and other
    community-based settings. The goal of the study is to
    reduce opioid-related overdose deaths by 40 percent
    by December 2021.
  • Age-Friendly Lowell. The Alliance will be working with
    several community partners that received this Tufts
    Health Plan Foundation Systems and Best Practices
    Grant, funding a project to build capacity to develop
    and implement an action and evaluation plan to promote
    health, independence, and quality of life among older
    Lowell residents.
