NEW BEDFORD — The Greater New Bedford Allies for Health and Wellness is offering up to 25 grants to mark the group’s 25th anniversary.
The grants, which will range in size from $500 to $2,000, are intended to fund programs in the region that will contribute to improved health outcomes for residents, according to a news release.
“We are looking to complement the great work being done by agencies and organizations here in the Greater New Bedford area,” said Barbara Acksen, chair of the group, in a statement. “Over our 25 year history, our coalition has thrived on collaboration, networking and mutual support. Our membership thought that reviving our grant program was an appropriate way to mark our twenty-five years, while also championing groups who may have not had any other way to fund these projects.”
Successful grant proposals will benefit one or more towns in the GNB Allies region, which includes Acushnet, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Freetown, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Rochester, and Wareham. The application is available at GBAllies.net or firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due Dec. 1.
