Applying for Funding

Healthy Neighborhoods Funding Opportunity Coming Soon

BIDMC will release a Request for Proposals (RFP) for Healthy Neighborhoods funding in February 2021. Neighborhood-specific coalitions will have the opportunity to apply for about $395,000 in funding for a community-led project.

The focus of the first round of this funding is the Boston neighborhoods of Fenway/Kenmore and Bowdoin/Geneva. Over the next 3 years, we will announce Healthy Neighborhoods RFP’s for the neighborhoods of Allston/Brighton, Chinatown, Mission Hill, and Roxbury as well.

More information coming soon.
