2017 Grantee Recognition Event – The Power of Partnerships 10/11/2017

The Power of Partnerships – Thursday, November 16th – Grantee Recognition Event

Con Alma Health Foundation awards grants each year to support nonprofits’ efforts to improve their community’s health. Our investments focus on ensuring that all people have full and equal access to opportunities that enable them to lead healthy lives.

While Con Alma is New Mexico’s largest foundation dedicated solely to health, our grants reflect a diversity of strategies and issues. We understand that health is more than healthcare and as such Con Alma defines health broadly to include physical, mental, emotional, behavioral, social, oral, environmental, economic and spiritual well-being.

Whether through our grantmaking, partnerships, research or reports, Con Alma serves as a catalyst for positive, systemic change. The emphasis of our grantmaking is on attaining long-term policy solutions and health equity. For the 2017 Grant Cycle, Con Alma awarded 46 grants totaling $625,000.

We congratulate the 2017 Grant Recipients!

Multi-Year Grants, building alliances and capacity to address access and policies that advance health equity (4 grants, totaling $200,000)

Small Grants, supporting health systems strategies to address the needs of our diverse communities (15 grants, totaling $175,000)

Technical Assistance Grants, strengthening the capacity of New Mexico’s nonprofit sector (13 grants, totaling $100,000)

New Mexico Children and 
Health Insurance Coverage
 

The Affordable Care Act includes provisions that focus on improving quality of care for racial and ethnic minorities. In New Mexico about 70 percent of children are of color, and almost a third of children live in poverty. Interactive maps are available that detail seven categories of children’s insurance coverage by county. These maps are a useful tool for anyone interested in learning more about the insurance coverage of New Mexico’s children by such categories as race, place, gender and income.
