Evaluation of the Racial Justice in Health program

Client: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation (BCBSMA Foundation)
Topic Areas: Advocacy and community engagement; Grant-making programs
Service: Participatory Evaluation

ICH is providing evaluation support for Racial Justice in Health, a new grant program funded by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation (BCBSMA Foundation) in partnership with the Rx Foundation and CareQuest Institute for Oral Health. The BCBSMA Foundation will select and support eight organizations for two years to enhance community engagement, build grassroots power, and develop campaigns for policies and practices that promote racial justice and equity in health and healthcare delivery. ICH will work with the BCBSMA Foundation and the selected grantees to develop a logic model depicting the program’s theory of change. ICH will also design and conduct qualitative interviews with the grantees throughout the course of the grant program to understand their capacity building needs, experience with the program, and outcomes after two years.
