Inova Awards $1.2 million in Health Equity Support to Local Nonprofits

Falls Church, VA – Seventeen (17) non-profits from Inova’s service area throughout Northern Virginia received Health Equity Opportunities funding, along with an additional six partner organizations totaling $1.2 million.  In support of improving health equity, Inova’s Division of Community Health and Health Equity funds nonprofit organizations that provide services to address health needs of under-resourced communities.

“Addressing the health equity needs of our community is fundamental to Inova’s mission,” said Stephen J. Motew, MD, MHA, FACS, Chief, Clinical Enterprise, Inova. “Partnering with other non-profits helps extend our reach to better meet both acute health issues as well as promoting the long-term health and wellbeing of the communities which we have the privilege to serve.”

Inova requests proposals for Health Equity Opportunities annually, encouraging nonprofit organizations to partner in meeting the diverse healthcare needs of our communities. Applicants are required to propose local programs based on the Community Health Needs Assessments that are impactful, feasible and demonstrate good stewardship of resources. All recipients support Inova’s commitment to improving access to care and supporting the wellbeing of the Northern Virginia community.
