Deadline Approaching for the Tufts Health Plan Foundation’s “Momentum Fund”

Communities often find it challenging to secure resources to support early-stage initiatives and innovative efforts around Age- and Dementia Friendly efforts. The Tufts Health Plan Foundation created the Momentum Fund to address this gap.

The goals of the Momentum Fund are to:

  • Foster community-led approaches focused on embracing and implementing age-friendly and dementia-friendly efforts.
  • Support innovative initiatives addressing the needs of older people who want the opportunity for greater health in their community, especially those focused in underrepresented communities and/or addressing inequities.
  • Create opportunities for collaboration among older people, the organizations that serve them and other sectors.
  • Ensure older people and those who support them are actively engaged in the solutions identified in these grants.
  • Share learning and insights across communities in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.

Applications are due by 4pm on September 20th.

One thought on “Deadline Approaching for the Tufts Health Plan Foundation’s “Momentum Fund”

  1. It’s particularly interesting that one of the oldest senior housing projects in Somerville, where Tufts is based, has just announced their closing, while MIT offers internships to reduce staff costs, and Tufts’ Pilot Payments to Somerville are $275,000 vs. over $2,000,000 they contribute to Boston. Dumping Juniors and Seniors into the immediate rental housing market only inflates costs to both students and neighbors. In other words, it appears that the Momentum of the Momentum Fund is as far from local needs as it could be, precisely when it should focus on immediate, real needsd.
