Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas Awards Nearly $1.8 Million in 2022
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) today announced the awarding of nearly $1.8 million in Healthy Kids, Healthy Families grants to 40 community-based organizations statewide with a focus on health and wellness and targeting socio-economic and social determinants of health impacts associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2022 HKHF grantees were selected following an extensive evaluation process. While the primary focus of the HKHF program remains predicated on four key pillars: disease prevention and management, nutrition, physical activity, and safe environments, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic reinforces BCBSTX’s focus on health equity and its core purpose to stand with its members and the communities in sickness and health.
Accordingly, the 2022 HKHF grant cycle called for an emphasis on programs that create measurable results to address the current public health pandemic and social factors impacting health inequalities and social determinants of health such as lack of housing, food deserts, education and jobs and mental health.
