APH funding community health projects

Wednesday, December 16, 2020 by Tai Moses

Have a good idea for making our community healthier? Apply for a healthy living mini-grant from Austin Public Health, which is funding health projects to prevent chronic disease. Grants of up to $2,500 are available for projects that will “make a lasting change” in Austin and Travis County. In addition, “Projects should address health disparities by reaching people who face higher rates of chronic disease, such as people with lower incomes, and people who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian, or Indigenous.” APH suggests focusing on the following topics:

  • Active living (physical activity)
  • Tobacco-free living
  • Healthy eating
  • Community gardens
  • Healthy food access
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Overall wellness
Find more information and apply here. The deadline for applications is Monday, Jan. 11.
