Introducing the UAH Funding Initiative grant recipients



​We are excited to officially announce our grant recipients for the Urban and Away-​From-Home (UAH) Funding Initiative.

The UAH Funding Initiative provided grants of up to $25,000 to support the UAH population in areas of primary care, mental health and wellness, the toxic drug response and addressing racism in health and wellness.
