Second Round of SIF Grant Funding Available
The John A. Hartford Foundation is seeking applications for a second round of grant funding from eligible and qualified non-profit primary care community health clinics serving low income populations in the States of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho to implement IMPACT, a program proven to improve depression outcomes for patients treated in primary care.
Effective communication is essential if we hope to achieve our common goal of improving the health of older adults. We must clearly articulate the problems and special needs of older people in our health care system to focus the attention of policy makers, health system leaders, and the general public. We must translate the scientific and technical language of the promising solutions our grantees have created into comprehensible and implementable ideas.
This is why the John A. Hartford Foundation has invested in our Communications and Dissemination Initiative, and why we are sharing some of the resources and tools we have developed with our network of grantees and friends.Learn more...
