$1.3M grant awarded to Healthy York County Coalition

The Healthy York County Coalition, a midstate health collaborative, has been awarded a two-year, $1.3 million grant to continue its work on a nationwide initiative.

In 2008, the combination of York and Adams counties became one of 14 communities nationwide to be selected for the Princeton, N.J.-based Robert Wood Johnson Foundation‘s Aligning Forces for Quality Initiative.

The program aims to improve health care quality, particularly for minorities and for people with low income and/or chronic diseases.

In 2008, the coalition received $1.6 million from the foundation for the project, which expires in April.

Healthy York, which worked with consumers, employers, health care providers and insurers in York and Adams counties on the initiative, was given an opportunity to apply for the aforementioned $1.3 million of continuation funding, said Christine Amy.

Amy coordinates the project for Healthy York. The foundation has said it will fund the overall initiative through 2015, she said.
