What does a Healthy Futures Fund project look like?

The Healthy Futures Fund finances projects that utilize the co-location model to promote primary care access and improve community health. The ideal health center project is co-located with a provider of non-clinical services that impact one or more social determinant of health. Examples of such services include but are not limited to: affordable housing, healthy food outlets and grocery stores, education or job training, fitness and wellness services. The ideal affordable housing project is co-located with a Federally Qualified Health Center or community-based primary care provider.
