Falls Church, VA — Inova Health System awarded $240,000 in Community Health Fund grants to 14 local nonprofit organizations this month. The Community Health Fund is an opportunity for Inova to invest in the community through partnerships that address population health needs and promote equity for all. These partnerships reinforce Inova’s ability to provide world-class healthcare by supporting positive programs and opportunities that make a difference in the quality of life, health, and welfare of the communities we serve.
“We are very thankful for the life-changing work of our nonprofit partners in taking care of our community,” said J. Stephen Jones, MD, President and CEO of Inova Heath System. “Inova is proud to award these grants to fund programs that harness the collective power of our community partners to create positive social impact.”
Each year, Inova issues requests for applications to local nonprofit organizations to apply for Community Health Fund grants. In 2021, Inova doubled its funding to a total of $240,000 to address increased needs of our residents due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
