Mini grant funds are available for Local Health Improvement Efforts.
The Statewide Health Improvement Partnership also known as SHIP, focuses on making the healthy choice the easier choice by creating an environment that supports healthy behavior. SHIP mini-grants of up to $1,500 per application are available for projects that increase opportunities for active living and/or healthy eating in communities by creating policy, systems, and/or environmental changes.
Funds will be prioritized for those with greater need, including diverse populations, low income groups, and persons over 60. To request an application email infolivewellwinona.org.
The deadline to apply is February 15th, 2017. Funded grantees will be notified by March 1st, 2017.
Launched in 2008 as part of Minnesota's bipartisan health reform effort, SHIP helps Minnesotans live longer, healthier lives while building healthy, vital communities.
