Safety Net

In 2018, the Crescent Porter Hale Foundation undertook a strategic review process of its Safety Net grants portfolio. As a result, in mid-2019, the foundation launched a grants strategy that provides targeted funding to food programs that have a significant focus on seniors. All funds have been allocated until mid-2023 via our multi-year grantmaking initiative focused on bolstering the food supply for older adults through food banks, food rescue agencies, and Meals on Wheels programs.

Applications for Safety Net grants are by invitation only.
