“Many of the grants awarded this cycle are aimed at promoting healing and support for communities that have historically been disproportionately harmed by the social determinants of health,” said Board Chair Danielle Price. “We recognize the trauma that many communities – especially communities of color – have endured as a result of inequitable systems and structures. We strive through our grantmaking to help rectify the many long-standing disparities that have been tolerated for too long and, ultimately, hurt all of us.”
