Funding Distribution Timeline

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) has recommended a timeline for distribution of the funds over the next eight years. This initial timeline is subject to change based on capacity restraints, community opportunities/changes, and allocation committee decisions.

Allocation Committees

In the summer of 2023, CAB responsibilities shifted to four Allocation Committees designated for each of the MGH Community Health Impact Funds priorities -- economic/financial stability and mobility, housing, mental/behavioral health, food and nutrition security. The charge for each of the Allocation Committees is to oversee a competitive process for awarding funds for the health priorities identified through the community engagement process. Members are expected to meet monthly for a set amount of time until funds are released.

Housing

The housing Allocation Committee began meeting this fall. Important dates for this priority include:

  • November 1, 2023: Release of Letter of Intent (LOI)
  • November 8, 2023, from 12 to 1 PM: Information Forum (Open to all.)
  • November 29, 2023: LOI Due
  • January 10, 2024: Applicants Notified of Status
  • January 26, 2024: Release of Housing Request for Proposal (RFP)
  • February 29, 2024: All Submissions Due
  • Early May 2024: Notification of Awards (All applicants will be notified if the grant was awarded or not.)

Economic Mobility, Mental Health, and Food and Nutrition

The economic/financial stability/mobility and mental/behavioral health Allocation Committees will meet this winter into the spring of 2024, and the food and nutrition security Allocation Committee is slated to begin in the summer of 2024.

If you are interested in serving on one of the upcoming allocation committees focused on a certain priority—economic/financial stability and mobility, mental/behavioral health, food and nutrition security—contact Sylvia Chiang at srchiang@mgh.harvard.edu. Membership for the housing allocation committee is now closed.
