VIM of Cape May County awarded grant

By On Deck Staff

The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey recently announced $2,457,600 in grants to support 18 federally qualified health centers and independent health centers in New Jersey.
Subsequently, Volunteers in Medicine of Cape May County will be awarded $202,500 over the next three years.
The funds were awarded as part of the foundation’s $5 million, five-year (2007 – 2011) grant initiative created to expand access to health care for thousands of uninsured and underinsured individuals throughout New Jersey.
“Health centers in New Jersey provide comprehensive, community-based primary and preventive health care services to anyone needing care, regardless of their ability to pay,” said William J. Marino, Chairman of the Board of The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey.
“These health centers provide a vital safety net for uninsured and underinsured individuals and families throughout the state who otherwise would go without even the most basic health care.”
The grants represent the Horizon Foundation’s second round of grants from its five-year, $5 million Health Center Initiative. In December 2006, the foundation awarded more than $2.3 million to 16 health centers in its first round of Health Center Initiative grants.
Funding recommendations to the foundation’s board of directors are made by a 10-member, review committee comprised of individuals from across the state knowledgeable about the health care issues facing New Jersey’s communities.
The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey commenced operations in 2004 and seeks to promote health and the arts by supporting charitable organizations making a positive impact in the lives of people in communities throughout New Jersey.
