Lorain County Public Health is committed to increasing access to healthy eating and active living to prevent chronic disease. In 2017, LCPH offered grants to Lorain County community organizations and collaborative groups to assist in building healthy communities. The Healthy Places, Healthy People Grants provide an opportunity for communities to develop meaningful partnerships and strategically enhance and impact their environment.
Community collaboration is an important part of this grant application. Proposed projects must have a representative from one primary coordinator/fiscal agent, and at least two additional coordinators representing different agencies, organizations, worksites, schools, faith based groups, or youth groups. Lorain County Public Health may not be used as a partner in the project.
