This grant program is aiming to fund organizations that provide preventative health needs, disease prevention and management, healthy aging, and physical fitness. Columbus Public Health received a $1.7 million grant from United Health to add 72 new community health workers to its staff. The staff then conducted outreach to women of childbearing age to help reduce infant mortality rates. This foundation does not publish deadlines, guidelines, or applications.
