Huntsville Hospital's Community Health Initiative outreach program presented 14 grants on Thursday.

The outreach program helps non-profit organizations in the area by awarding grants for health care programs. The grants presented Thursday totaled $525,000. Over the past 18 years, Community Health Initiative has awarded more than $8.3 million to 46 agencies. 

Two recipients of the grant are new programs associated with the North Alabama Sickle Cell Foundation, Inc. and Southeastern Diabetes Education Services. 

The purpose of the initiative is to improve health status of citizens of Madison County through education, prevention and early detection of diseases. The initiative committee encourages organizations with new or innovative programs to apply for funds and decides how to allocate grant money.
