Synergy Initiative

The Synergy Initiative provides multi-year funding for collaborative efforts that target community-identified health issues in Central Massachusetts with integrated, comprehensive strategies designed to improve health, concluding with systems or policy changes to sustain the project. Requests for proposals are issued every four to five years.

The Synergy Initiative is currently closed. The Synergy Initiative typically opens for new applications every five years.  The Health Foundation expects to begin recruiting for Round 6 of the Synergy Initiative in 2024.
