Overview

Established in 1992, the Smart Choices program is designed to strengthen the capacity of community-based organizations serving Charlestown to meet the health and social service needs of community residents. Since its inception, nearly $5 million has been distributed to nonprofits and agencies that seek to promote the wellbeing of residents of this Boston neighborhood. A central focus of these funds is to facilitate collaboration and leverage collective impact among partnering organizations.
