Grant Opportunity: 2019 Chronic Disease Prevention Mini-Grant

From the Austin Public Health website:

 

Chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, chronic lung disease and diabetes make up nearly three out of five deaths in Travis County.

The good news is that active living, healthy eating, and not using tobacco can help prevent chronic disease. Austin Public Health funds projects to prevent chronic disease in Austin and Travis County. Grants can be up to $2500 with a focus on making a lasting change.

Projects should address health disparities by reaching people who face higher rates of chronic disease (such as people with lower incomes, and people who are African American, Hispanic/Latino, or Asian American).

Projects should focus on one (or more) of these topics:

  • Active living
  • Tobacco-free living
  • Healthy eating
  • Community gardens
  • Healthy food pantries
  • Breastfeeding support
