HMEA receives two grants

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"Horace Mann Education Associates recently announced that it has been awarded a $25,000 Learn to Earn Initiative grant from the Baker-Polito administration to design a career training program for unemployed or underemployed young adults with disabilities in the southern Worcester County region of Massachusetts.

HMEA will serve as the lead agency on the pilot initiative in partnership with the Central Massachusetts Employment Collaborative, Work Without Limits of UMass Medical School’s Commonwealth Medicine division, and the MassHire Central Region Workforce Board. Employer partners include Sodexo USA, Cumberland Farms and the Worcester Public Schools.

LTE is a comprehensive approach to providing individuals who are receiving assistance from public benefit programs with the supports, skills, and credentials they need to gain and retain employment in occupations for which employers have persistent demand."

"Horace Mann Educational Associates was awarded a one-year grant for $35,000 from Tufts Health Plan Foundation as part of its smart data efforts for better health care.

This is one of 15 new community investments totaling nearly $1.9 million that reflect the Foundation’s commitment to advancing policies and practices that support healthy aging, including addressing gaps in food access, housing, transportation and community safety.

HMEA is the lead convener of 30 organizations supporting older people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The grant will support HMEA’s work to build health care Quality Measures into an electronic information system, create benchmarks across pilot agencies and convene a learning community to improve collaboration among human service organizations and health care providers. This electronic system is a key asset needed to help these organizations collaborate with health care providers serving older people with disabilities."
