MFH's new strategy is designed to increase our focus and impact on the health of Missourians. In the future, we will focus our funding in three portfolios.
The MFH Board of Directors approved this overall strategy in December. We are currently developing an implementation plan to ensure effectiveness of the strategy. New grant opportunities will begin to roll out after April 1, 2013 and will continue to be released on an ongoing basis into 2014 and beyond.
