Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Recovery Grant Program

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Recovery Grant Program

Applications due Friday, June 28, 2018 by 4 p.m.

There’s a not-so-quiet epidemic taking place in communities across New England and throughout the country. Families are desperate for answers to the sad and prolonged addiction to opioids ravaging their children, sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers. We know there is no simple answer to breaking the addictive behaviors, but there are ways to diminish them and help mend the afflicted.

As a leading not-for-profit health services organization, we serve as a guide to our members, and our communities, to better health. This year, the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation, an affiliate of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, is offering grants of up to $10,000 to local nonprofit organizations in New Hampshire who serve New Hampshire residents with evidence-based prevention, treatment or recovery services to those who suffer from opioid addiction.

Applicant organizations must be not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organizations to be eligible for grants.
