Baptist Healing Trust's Board of Trust is pleased to announce that over $1.2 Million worth of grants were awarded to 33 non-profit organizations that impact the health and well-being of Middle Tennesseans late last week. This latest round of grants brings the total Trust grant-making, since inception, to over 63 million dollars.
In addition to its regular funding cycle, BHT held a special funding cycle for Affordable Care Act outreach, training, and enrollment assistance.
