    Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) is committed to increasing access to healthy eating and active living opportunities to prevent chronic disease. LCPH offers Healthy Places grants to nonprofits, community organizations, and other groups that serve people in Lorain County. The purpose of these grants is to create a long-lasting impact on the health of people in Lorain County, especially people in overburdened populations. Because the aim of the grants is to create long-lasting impact through infrastructure or environment improvements, LCPH does not award funding for personnel, programming or events.

    Learn about shared use - the concept that makes and keeps these projects open to the public.

    This Healthy Places Grant program has invested nearly $750,000 back into the community since 2015. The grantees also leveraged an additional $270,000 in non-LCPH funding for their projects.
