MHAC Partners Receive Grant Funding to Advance Healthy Aging

Jun 12, 2017

The Cummings Foundation “100K for 100” Program has awarded two organizations working with the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative (MHAC) for different initiatives that will both advance healthy aging practices as well as age-friendly communities.

WalkBoston, an MHAC Executive Committee member, was awarded $100,000 to work with municipalities and local organizations to create safer pedestrian environments through training programs and empowering residents to be change agents for safe streets.

Bridges Together was also a recipient of the Cummings Foundation grant, which will help increase their work to establish inter-generational programming within communities that unite the young and old.
