UVMC makes grants

Staff report

TROY — Upper Valley Medical Center in January awarded UVMC Community Benefit Grants to the Tri-County Board of Recovery and Mental Health Services’ One Wellness Place and the Historic East Piqua Development/iPIQUA Fund.

Each organization will receive $100,000 to be distributed over a three-year period.

One Wellness Place is a public-private partnership which, once completed on county Road 25-A north of Troy, will house mental health and addictions treatment providers, public health, and related support services. The project was developed by the Tri-County Board, which is responsible for planning, funding, monitoring and evaluating substance abuse and mental health services for Miami, Darke, and Shelby counties.

The Historic East Piqua Development plan includes health and wellness, recreation, and infill development opportunities and strategies for the area on the east side of Piqua bordered by the Great Miami River to the north, east and south.

UVMC Community Benefit Grants are awarded in support of Miami County organizations to help improve residents’ health and well-being. Since 2012, the program has awarded $2.55 million in local grants.
