NEW: Fallon Seeks Grant Applicants for Healthy Communities Challenge

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

 

Community organizations that promote a healthier lifestyle are invited to apply for Fallon Community Health Plan’s 2012 Healthy Communities Challenge.

FCHP is looking to reward local programs that help make Massachusetts a healthier place by promoting healthy living, good nutrition or physical activity. Organizations can submit their program through FCHP’s Facebook page until July 27.

Ten finalists will be selected and posted on the Facebook page, and voting will be open to the public from August 6 to 27. The winner will be announced on August 31.

The top program will receive a $5,000 grant, and finalists will each get $500.

Eligible organizations include, but are not limited to, nonprofit health and social service agencies, public schools, city or town agencies, community health centers, community mental health agencies and hospitals.

The goal of the Healthy Communities Challenge is to support new programs or improvement of existing programs aimed at promoting good nutrition and physical activity, especially among vulnerable populations.

Consideration will be given to programs that improve access, availability and utilization of food in food-insecure environments, seek to improve the nutritional value of food provided through nutrition assistance programs, promote better nutrition through educational programs or promote physical activity, healthy eating and other healthy behaviors.
