Healthy Community Grant

With community members in the center, our Healthy Community Grant Process is designed to work side by side with multi-sector partners to address community needs and opportunities based on community informed data. We hope that rolling cycles, open dialogue and a phased grant process, we will catalyze conversation on policy, systems and enviornmental positive change opportunities by empowering and mobilizing our biggest asset, our community members.


Healthy Community Guiding Principles:

(1) Gather information from existing data sources and from residents before setting priorities and determining what approaches to take;


(2) Harness multi-sector, collaborative partnerships to leverage resources, shape policy, and remove barriers that hinder the health of all people; and


(3) Evaluate whether strategies and policies are working effectively as intended, and share lessons learned with the community.
