One of the ways that Healthy Central Florida has been creating lasting change has been through funding other organizations to join the work of building healthy communities.  Each HCF grantee must use evidence-based strategies learned in HCF workshops and then implemented in their grant projects.  To date, grants have focused on getting adults and children moving more – walking and biking in particular. Healthy Central Florida has given out more than 100,000 dollars in grants. Another health innovation grant is planned for this spring – stay tuned.  More details will be announced soon.
