Eden Health District Provides $250K in Grants for 2019

This is the time of year when we look to grant wishes to those we care about…a “season of giving.” It is no different for Eden Health District that has for more than 19 years given more than $12.7 million in health-related grants through its Community Health Fund Program to non-profit and government agencies advancing the health and well-being of District residents.
