Northern Light Inland Hospital Grant Program Supports a Healthy Community

Date: 07/12/2019

Northern Light Inland Hospital is inspired to do good for our community, and we love partnering with others because together, we accomplish more! It’s why we’re proud to announce our 2019 Community Benefit grants – one way Inland collaborates to improve the health and overall quality of life in the communities we serve.

Through our Community Benefit program, Inland contributed more than $53,000 to non-profit organizations and schools in our hospital service area. We give priority to health-related initiatives, programs or services serving vulnerable or under-served populations in the Greater Waterville area, and organizations that are working to make a measurable impact on health.

This year, Inland has awarded grants to 31 local organizations for community-building projects and health initiatives that focus on obesity prevention, poverty and economic opportunity, substance abuse prevention, mental health, homelessness, domestic violence, healthy food access, transportation, and more. Thanks to a grant from Maine Prevention Services and Let’s Go!, funds were awarded to 15 schools and childcare sites that partner with Inland and Let’s Go! 5210; a childhood obesity prevention program.

Thank you to these organizations for the important work they do and their collaborative spirit to make our community healthier!
