Community Health Impact Funds

We are pleased to announce that the Letter of Intent (LOI) process is now open for two Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Community Health Impact Funding priorities - Economic Mobility/Financial Stability and Mental/Behavioral Health. Details on the LOI process for these two priorities can be found below.

Organizations can apply for one or both of these LOIs, but it's crucial to carefully review the selection criteria, key dates, timelines, and priority communities for each.

Two significant construction projects, the Phillip and Susan Ragon Building at Massachusetts General Hospital and the campus expansion project at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital, are set to channel more than $67 million into the well-being of the communities served by Mass General Brigham through the Determination of Need (DoN) process.

This funding, referred to as Community Health Impact Funds, offers an incredible opportunity for us to collaborate with our community partners with the aim of creating lasting, sustainable improvements in the health and wellness of the communities we serve.

Priorities and Strategies Timeline:

Each hospital's Community Advisory Board (CAB), driven by its community-focused Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and other essential data for the City of Boston and the North Suffolk region, has already identified the priorities and strategies for this funding. The status of these opportunities is as follows:

  • BWFH’s LOI process for Mental/Behavioral Health funding is now CLOSED. Read HERE about the results of this process and the organizations that were awarded fund.
  • MGH’s LOI process for Housing is also now CLOSED, with RFPs and presentations currently under review. Funding awards will be announced sometime in early May.
  • MGH’s LOI process for Mental/Behavioral Health and Economic Stability/Mobility is now OPEN.  
  • MGH’s LOI process for food insecurity initiatives will open sometime in Fall of 2024.


We are committed to ensuring an equitable, accessible, and transparent process, so please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. Please feel free to share this opportunity with your colleagues and partners who might be interested.

It is a historic time for our health system and the communities we serve. We look forward to the journey ahead and are excited to have you join us!
