COMMUNITY BENEFITS GRANT

Twenty-one percent of people living in Harris County lack insurance, making access to health care almost impossible for those who cannot pay for it out of pocket. To assist with mitigating these barriers to health care, Houston Methodist offers the Community Benefits Grant to local nonprofits working to provide affordable, quality access to health care services while stressing the importance of preventative care. The Community Benefits Grant offers operating and program support to agencies providing direct care and access for those living 200% or below the Federal Poverty Line.
