Pew Awards $8M to Address Maternal and Infant Health, LGBTQ+ Youth Wellness and Stability, and Teacher Shortage in Philadelphia

Posted by Pew Charitable Trusts on April 16, 2024

The Pew Charitable Trusts had announced that it has awarded more than $8 million to Philadelphia-area nonprofit organizations working to improve maternal and infant health for low-income families; increase the availability of health, housing, and social services for LGBTQ+ youth; and test new approaches to address the city’s K-12 teacher shortage, with a focus on attracting and retaining a diverse workforce. The 11 grantees support thriving local communities and seek to eliminate disparities in well-being based on race or income.

“It is a privilege to support organizations that are building solutions to some of the most significant health and social issues of our time,” said Kristin Romens, project director of the Pew Fund for Health and Human Services in Philadelphia. “Pew’s grants will help these organizations grow and improve their programs, fill service gaps, and broaden the evidence base for social solutions so that more Philadelphians can thrive.”
