Con Alma Health Foundation has awarded $530,000 to 26 nonprofits working to improve health and uplift underserved populations across New Mexico. Some grants focus on statewide initiatives, while others serve people living in 22 counties, 14 pueblos and the Navajo Nation.
Nonprofits will focus on the following areas: Bernalillo, Catron, Chaves, Doña Ana, Eddy, Grant, Lea, Los Alamos, Luna, McKinley, Mora, Rio Arriba, Roosevelt, San Juan, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe, Socorro, Taos, Torrance, Union and Valencia, as well as the pueblos of Cochiti, Isleta, Jemez, Laguna, Nambe, Ohkay Owingeh, Picuris, Pojoaque, Santa Ana, San Felipe, San Ildefonso, Santo Domingo, Tesuque and Zuni.
“More than ever, we need partners and supporters in every sector to help advance health equity in our state, so all New Mexicans have equal opportunities to live healthy lives. The Board of Trustees is inspired by this year’s grantees, which are working toward long-term social change,” said Con Alma’s Board Secretary Robin Brule.
Grants will fund a range of services that include supporting homeless youth, Indigenous youth, grandparents raising grandchildren, behavioral health services, people experiencing domestic violence, individuals who identify as LGBTQ+, nutrition training for home healthcare workers, and racial equity in the child welfare system.
