Prevention and Wellness Trust Fund

The Prevention and Wellness Trust Fund helps support community based partnerships like  municipalities, healthcare systems, businesses, regional planning organizations, and schools. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has allocated funding to nine local grantee partnerships which focus on four priority health conditions: pediatric asthma, hypertension, tobacco use, and falls in older adults.
