Interact for Health
- Health Sector
Since 1997, The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati has awarded $127.9 million through 2,559 grants. After our grant funding ends, 86 percent of start-up and expansion projects continue. In 2012, we are giving more attention in the work we do in our focus areas to our three strategies: Integrated Care, Healthcare Reform and Prevention. Projects range from treating physical health problems at mental health agencies, to educating people about the provisions of the Affordable Care Act of 2010, to preventing substance abuse.
We make grants primarily in four focus areas
1. School-Aged Children's Healthcare:
-Healthcare services to students have been expanded through collaboration with local healthcare and funding communities and Cincinnati Public Schools.
-More than 5,000 students participated in evidence-based prevention programs that reduced behavior problems in local schools.
2. Severe Mental Illness:
-People with severe mental illnesses have greater
access to evidence-based treatment practices,
such as supported employment, and supportive
services, such as peer and family programs.
- Integrated mental and physical healthcare projects
provide medical homes to more than 2,500 people
with severe mental illnesses.
3. Community Primary Care:
-We have helped open many new and expanded
primary and dental care services in our region.
- Projects connect children and adults to medical
homes, a regular source of healthcare.
4. Substance Use Disorders:
-People are bringing prevention messages into their
everyday activities and making changes in their community
