BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Healthcare Foundation says it will make $1.3 million in grants to health departments throughout the state beginning next March.

Foundation CEO Aaron Wernham says the foundation’s goal is to improve health and strengthen public health services throughout the state.

Since the foundation is just beginning to build the infrastructure needed to make and administer grants, it will distribute the funds with help from the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.

The foundation says the money will provide critically needed support to local and tribal health officials seeking to improve the health of Montanans.

It noted that most of the money will be used by health departments to better understand the health needs in their communities and to improve the delivery of public health services.
