Montana Healthy Communities Mini-Grant
As follow up to the 2015 Montana Healthy Communities Conference, a mini-grant program is now available. The purpose of the mini-grants are to help communities in Montana hatch and grow projects aimed at improving the health of communities by addressing “upstream” factors that influence health.
An idea generated through the conference was to provide mini-grants to stimulate existing efforts and create new opportunities to improve health. Projects funded would involve community organizations; different sectors such as transportation, economic development, housing and early childhood; and include health and public health entities working together to improve community health. Mini-grants are expected to be between $250-1000.
Application Deadline: October 31st, 2016
