What We Do


H2HC granted more than $1 million to support innovative community-based models and critical research in CT, MA, and RI.

What We Funded

H2HC funding supported ground-breaking research, strengthened food insecurity screening and referrals for food assistance, improved access to culturally relevant foods, and assessed food insecurity challenges through a focus on the social drivers of health. H2HC’s support of 19 community partners expanded access to food and advanced partnerships between emergency food services, healthcare, and housing organizations. It also contributed to supporting health equity by prioritizing organizations that put Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) with lived experiences at the center of their activities.
