The Verdant Health Commissioners at its Aug. 23 board meeting awarded $2,992,938 in fall grants to 19 nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving community health.
According to a Verdant announcement, the funds were awarded through a competitive application process. This ensures that the funds are being allocated to organizations that have the capacity to serve the community with innovative approaches to addressing community health needs, Verdant said.
Each of these funded projects addresses one or more of Verdant’s strategic priorities: health care access, mental health services and food security. “We are pleased to invest in organizations that provide needed health services for the residents of South Snohomish County,” said Commissioner Karianna Wilson.
On Nov. 1, Verdant will accept applications for the spring 2024 funding cycle.
