Regional Listening Sessions

Are you working on racial justice to help improve health equity in your community? Is your organization concerned about how issues like poor housing or educational opportunities are impacting the health of your family and friends? We want to hear from you!

Join staff from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Health Resources in Action and Advisory Committee members for an overview of two exciting new Massachusetts funds focused on community health. These funds are the Statewide Community Health Initiative (CHI) Fund and The Healthy Aging Fund.

By attending one of the sessions, you have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the funds’ history, rationale, investment process, and timeline
  • Network with others in your community and find potential collaboration partners to strengthen your work
  • Identify and contribute ideas for community-based initiatives that align with upcoming funding opportunities
