Thanks to more than $5 million in federal grants, the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven will be able to launch a new initiative, the New Haven Healthy Start “5.0”, to reduce the number of newborns that are dying among black babies.

A report from the foundation highlighted that the number of infant deaths among black babies jumped up from 5 to 10 in 2015, while among white babies, dropped from two to zero.

The gap in resources for black families drove the foundation’s new initiative, which will also focus on equipping newborns, mothers and fathers for a healthy start at life as a family.
