Excellus BlueCross BlueShield is giving away a total of $95,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations within the 31-county upstate New York region.

Local nonprofit organizations can apply for Excellus BlueCross BlueShield Community Health Award grants for up to $4,000 each.

“The award can be used for programs that have clear goals to improve the health or health care of a specific population,” according to the news release from Excellus BCBS. “Programs that improve the health status of the community, reduce the incidence of specific diseases, promote health education and further overall wellness will be considered.”

The deadline to submit an application to be considered for a grant is Monday, Feb. 19. For more information or to apply for a grant, click here.

Excellus BCBG’s 31-county upstate operating area is divided into four regions: the Utica/North Country region, the Central New York region, the Central New York Southern Tier region and the Rochester Region.

Last year, more than 40 nonprofits within the Utica/North Country region applied for the Community Health Awards, and 12 of those organizations were selected to be recipients of the grants.
