Supporting the Troops and Families Care Project to coordinate health, mental health and support services for military families

The Foundation's program, Local Funding Partnerships, was designed to continue a matching grants program to establish partnerships between RWJF and local grant makers in support of innovative, community-based projects that improve health and health care for vulnerable populations.To improve health and wellbeing for U.S. troops, veterans and their families, this project promotes a common referral system between military, veteran and community-based programs. A web-based map with links to the full range of civilian resources in Montgomery County, MD will be cross-referenced with military and veterans programs to expedite access to health, housing, education, financial and other services. Outreach and training will foster interagency collaboration to bridge gaps in care. Evaluation results with real time recommendations to key state and federal policymakers will facilitate systems change.Local funders include: The Clark Charitable Foundation, Healthcare Initiative Foundation, The HSC Foundation, Mead Family Foundation, Montgomery County Government, and the Stanford and Doris Slavin Foundation.
