What We Do

Grantmaking

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

What We’ve Funded

H2HC funding has 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 determinants of health. H2HC’s support of 19 community partners has expanded access to food; advanced partnerships between emergency food services, healthcare, and housing organizations; and contributed to long-term efforts to support health equity by prioritizing organizations that put Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) with lived experiences at the center of their activities.
