WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Nonprofit or government agencies that provide medication assistance to low-income people in Forsyth County who lack insurance that covers prescription drugs could get a boost from a new initiative of the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust in Winston-Salem.
The foundation will make grants totaling up to $1.5 million over three years to groups that already distribute medications or medical supplies, or both, or that provide funds to pay for them.
Grants will not exceed $100,000 a year for any single group.
While significant efforts already provide medication assistance to low-income people in the county, the foundation says, additional funding is needed.
Groups wanting to submit an application first must schedule a meeting with the foundation’s staff by calling 336.723.1456. The deadline for submitting applications is Jan. 18, 2005.
