Public Health Fund Announces More Than One Million in Grants in Virtual Strategy Magazine
July 31, 2012 - Philadelphia, PA
Today, July 31, 2012, Public Health Fund, formerly the Philadelphia Health Care Trust, announced that it will award a total of $1,030,815 to 13 organizations in its 2012 grant-making process. . . .
Applications involved a rigorous, two-part submission process. Interested organizations first submitted letters of intent. Those selected by the Public Health Fund grant committee to move to the next step then received invitations to provide detailed proposals. Proposals that demonstrated an ability to leverage funds through collaboration with other programmatic partners and funding sources were given priority, supporting Public Health Fund’s commitment to impact population health through system-scale initiatives.
“The Public Health Fund grant provides us critical support, and we’re pleased to partner with an organization that understands the importance of educating the community about how science and society interact in the development of health policies,” says Jody Roberts, Director of the Center for Contemporary History and Policy at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. “We are thrilled to advance our outreach efforts to educate and inform Philadelphians.”. . .
