In January 2017, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) completed a landmark revision of the Determination of Need (DoN) regulation. The revised regulation authorized the creation of the Massachusetts Community Health and Healthy Aging Funds. The Funds invest significant resources in Massachusetts communities to improve population health outcomes through innovative and sustainable approaches that bring together a variety of people and partners. Three funding opportunities make up the Massachusetts Community Health and Healthy Aging Funds: Policy, Systems, and Environmental Change Approaches Community Health Improvement Planning (CHIP) Processes Healthy Aging For more information on our grantmaking, visit the What We Fund page.
