    This year’s grant awards will prioritize the support of three types of projects: (1) delivery of essential health services, including primary/preventative care, women’s health, and dental care; (2) address the opioid epidemic through integrated behavioral health services; and (3) promote food security and address childhood and family obesity.


    “The Commission looks forward to supporting projects that will expand access to critical health services for at-risk residents,” said CHRC Chairman Dr. Allan Anderson. “We look forward to awarding projects that are sustainable and replicable in communities throughout our state.”


    “Grant funding provided by the Commission will drive important action and innovation in underserved communities throughout Maryland,” said Maryland Department of Health Secretary Robert R.

    The CHRC looks to serve as a public health incubator, providing initial seed funding to help start new and innovative projects in underserved areas. The Commission has awarded $64.1 million to 210 grants for support projects in all 24 jurisdictions. CHRC grantees have utilized initial funding to leverage an additional $23.1 million.
