Transforming Community Health
The Partnership for Community Health is an initiative of Neighborhood Health Plan (NHP), Partners HealthCare, and the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers to support the state’s community health centers (CHCs) in their continued efforts to reduce barriers to access, promote health equity, and organize care for patients in their communities.
The initiative will provide up to $90 million in grants over 15 years. All League members are eligible for the Partnership for Community Health grants.
