Social Impact Fund Investment Opens
We’re seeking applicants for the American Heart Association’s Social Impact Fund who are addressing social determinants of health challenges impacting residents in Los Angeles.
We're looking for sustainable solutions focused on access to health care, housing, and affordable and healthy food; economic empowerment; or closing the educational achievement gap in under-resourced communities. Applicants must be non-profit organizations or for-profit social entrepreneurs.
Investment window is open from 8 a.m. Wednesday, September 7 through Wednesday, October 12, 5 p.m. (PT).
Health doesn’t begin at the doctor’s office.When people don’t have stable homes, nutritious food, good schools or clean air and water, their health suffers. The differences among neighborhoods can be dramatic: The life expectancy of two people living just a few miles apart can differ by 20 years.
The American Heart Association’s Social Impact Fund is helping close that gap by supporting projects that can change neighborhoods — and improve the lives of everyone there.
