More than $230K via a partnership with the Tennessee Initiative for Perinatal Quality Care (TIPQC) to improve the health of pregnant women and infants impacted by the opioid epidemic.
Long-term services and support
$500K to the Quality Improvement for Long-Term Services & Supports Institute (QuILTSS) to support competency-based training program for direct service workers.
More than $400K in grant funds to food banks across Tennessee to provide food to residents, including Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, the Chattanooga Area Food Bank, The Mid South Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee, and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
Investing in social drivers of health
By collaborating with local, regional and national partners, UnitedHealthcare Community & State is prioritizing socioeconomic and demographic challenges such as public health crises, delivery system capacity building, coordinated health and social services initiatives, and affordable housing with the intent to invest in sustainable solutions. Through investments in housing projects and community-based organizations, including $7.7M in affordable housing investments, we aim to improve health and well-being in low-income communities.
