The Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group (NNMHGG) is a joint initiative of Con Alma and the Hospital Auxiliary of Los Alamos Medical Center.

NNMHGG Grant Cycle

NNMHGG Grants support a wide range of programs/projects, initiatives and organizations that address the needs left unmet by the sale of Los Alamos Medical Center. These needs are detailed in “Data for Grantmaking: A Comparative Study of Community Health”.
