Reliant Foundation awards grants to non-profit 501(c)3 organizations with programs that address critical public health issues, including substance use (primarily the opioid epidemic), mental and behavioral health services for children and youth, childhood obesity, and access to nutrition. 

On an annual basis, Reliant Foundation raises funds and makes grants with our mission in mind: to improve the health and well-being of individuals of all ages in the Central and MetroWest regions of Massachusetts.

On March 31, 2018 we underwent a transition to an independent non-profit organization. We will continue to support community grants to 501(c)3 organizations with health-focused programs and projects. Please see below for a list of recent grant recipients.
