Better Together Montgomery is one of the nine entities chosen by Blue Cross/Blue Shield Foundation to “implement unique approaches to emerging health needs within their communities.” Beginning with three areas, Greensboro, Asheville and Gastonia in 2015, six more areas were added in 2019, with Montgomery’s being just one of those areas.

According to Blue Cross Blue Shield, “These communities were supported with an initial 15-month planning grant and are now part of a $7.5 million commitment to support their work, to learn, and to inspire community conditions that increase health equity over the next five years.” After the initial setup, grant funding “supports four years of implementation work to create change for the health of their communities.”
