Connecticut Health Foundation Announces Strategic Plan Focused on Health Equity

The Connecticut Health Foundation has announced a new five-year strategic plan focused on advancing health equity.  The mission of the foundation states that “Everyone deserves the opportunity for optimal health, regardless of race, ethnicity, background, or income level.  We are dedicated to improving the health of all Connecticut residents.”

In the context of the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the foundation has decided to focus its grantmaking over the next five years on 1) getting Connecticut residents enrolled in and retaining affordable health care insurance,              2) navigating the health care system to get the health care they need, when they need it, and 3) getting health care that is affordable, comprehensive, and accountable for improving  health.

As of the end of 2011, the foundation had assets of nearly $103 million and made grants totaling $3 million that year.
