$25,000 in Mini-Grants Available at 5th Annual Health Innovation Grants Workshop

 

Healthy people live in healthy communities – ones in which residents can walk, bike, move and play safely whether they are eight or eighty years old. It’s also a place where they have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food.

Join Healthy Central Florida for our 5th annual Health Innovation Grants Workshop on Nov. 1st, where $25,000 in mini-grants will be awarded to community organizations to take another step toward becoming the healthiest community in the nation.

Hear international visionary, Gil Penalosa, founder of 8-80 Cities, on how to create truly great communities that are healthy and equitable for all.  Gil has presented his inspiring health message in more than 200 cities around the world.  His simple and effective principle for inclusive city/community-building and ensuring the safety (and joy) of children and adults from 8 to 80 years-old, should be at the forefront of every decision we make in our cities, schools, faith communities and workplaces.

Participants will also hear from native son and good food advocate, John Rife, founder of East End Market and winner of Urban Land Institute’s Trendsetter Award.  John is recognized nationally as an innovator and locally as the go-to guy in the world of good food.  He will share about innovative projects happening around the country and in our backyard.

Learn how your organization can receive one of ten mini-grants totaling $25,000.
