Foundation / Corporation
Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF) - North Shore Community Health Network (NSCHN)
Grants of up to $50,000 to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations for programs that improve health outcomes and address health inequities in eligible locations. Funding is intended to support projects that promote elder health, as well as youth and adolescent behavioral health. The grant program seeks to address the impacts of social isolation and the corresponding rise in behavioral and mental health needs of older adults and youth/adolescents resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Eligible programs benefit the residents of Beverly, Essex, Gloucester, Hamilton, Ipswich, Manchester, Rockport, Wenham, Danvers, Lynn, Lynnfield, Marblehead, Nahant, Peabody, Salem, Saugus, Swampscott, and Topsfield.
The Fund is especially interested in the impact of grants to make a demonstrable difference in mental and behavioral health outcomes for their target populations. In line with the focus on equity, priority will be given to applications that address health disparities by delivering enhanced programs and services to the most-impacted and under-resourced communities. This includes, in particular, lower-income, BIPOC (Black, indigenous, people of color), and non-native-English speaking populations.
The Foundation is also interested in work that demonstrably improves the delivery of culturally-responsive programming by addressing staffing and training needs within youth- and elder-serving organizations.
Examples of qualifying applications could include (not an exhaustive list):
GrantWatch ID#: 195086
The grant range is $5,000 - $50,000.

Two-year grants will be considered with second-year funding released contingent on the availability of funds and satisfactory progress of project goals and objectives.
