Kansas City, MO — Health Forward Foundation is proud to award $4.7 million in grants to 28 nonprofit organizations through our 2019 Safety Net funding.
Funding supports improved access to physical health care and oral health care for those most in need.

“In the first of a planned three-year commitment, Health Forward is awarding nearly half, $2 million, to provide core support to agencies that provide direct medical and dental services to vulnerable populations,” said Graciela Couchonnal, Ph.D., vice president of programs.
Health Forward received a total of 50 proposals totaling nearly $9.1 million in requests.
The following grants were awarded during the December board of directors meeting:
