COVID-19 Immigrant Community Assistance
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation awarded a $500,000 grant to Con Alma Health Foundation to establish and manage the COVID-19 Relief for Immigrant Communities in New Mexico Fund, which will provide direct assistance to New Mexicans who are immigrants and create awareness about the structural barriers to their well-being. Con Alma will prioritize grants to immigrant-led organizations and requests that include collaboration and coordination with others on COVID-19 efforts.
Con Alma will establish an advisory committee with diverse representation to help guide the project and partner with the New Mexico Health Equity Partnership, an initiative at the Santa Fe Community Foundation that engages a statewide network to advance health equity in New Mexico.
