Healthcare Georgia provides $1.17 million to 30 nonprofits
February 25, 2013
Healthcare Georgia recently announced $1.1 million in grants for 30 nonprofits in The Peach State to promote healthier lives for residents, especially those who may not have access to healthcare otherwise. The organization, which is a private group that serves the entire state, is restructuring its grantmaking strategies to make processes more efficient, impactful and cost-effective.
Going forward, Healthcare Georgia will make grants through two cycles - one that focuses on core operating support and one that prioritizes health service support. It has also established a priority for funding public education programs and health centers, infant mortality initiatives and better health for citizens.
Healthcare Georgia's 2012 awards reflect these goals, as it provided funding to the United Way of the Coastal Empire, Inc. for a web-based information system that can be used to assess community members' needs and improve health, the Pubic Health Law Center to support its 2012 conference that addressed crucial challenges and the Pediatric Foundation of Georgia, for its work to educate parents about the benefits of breastfeeding and reducing vaccine preventable diseases.
