Funding will build community health

NORWAY — The Maine Health Access Foundation (MeHAF) has awarded $618,116 to 16 nonprofits across the state in the second phase of its Healthy Community grant program. One of these groups is the Oxford County Wellness Collaborative, which has been working to transform health through new community action across the county.

Launched in November of 2013, MeHAF’s Healthy Community program supports local, grassroots efforts that build or strengthen collaboration and active participation from diverse organizations to support good health. A key feature of these grants is engagement of individuals and groups in the community who typically are not included in defining solutions to local problems, such as people who are uninsured or low-income individuals and families.
