Healthy living funding available

The Colorado Health Foundation has a new funding opportunity within the Healthy Living outcome area: Activating Places and Spaces Together. In Healthy Living, the focus is on ensuring that every kid in Colorado has the opportunity to eat healthy and engage in physical activity.

As part of the Colorado Health Foundation's focus on ensuring that communities have quality indoor and outdoor infrastructure that encourages kids to be physically active, this funding opportunity supports locally-defined, place-specific efforts to get people outdoors and actively engaged in their neighborhoods - together. The goal of the funding opportunity is to help activate existing infrastructure in public places that contributes to a community's overall health through residential usage and positive experiences. 

Foundation grant funds will support costs associated with project/program planning and/or implementation for up to one year.
