NEW! Aetna's 2017 Cultivating Healthy Communities Grant Program seeks approaches to increase the opportunities to make healthy choices in these places, empowering whole communities to lead healthier lives.
The past focus on physical activity, urban farms, and local food remains. But the program as a whole aims to have broader impact and reach more spaces in the community. The 2017 call for proposals invites projects that address issues in the following domains: Built Environment, Community Safety, Environmental Exposures, Healthy Behaviors, and Social/Economic Factors.
Awards appear to be around $50,000. See the list of 2016 funded projects here https://news.aetna.com/news-releases/the-aetna-foundation-awards-more-than-2-million-in-grants-across-usa-to-cultivate-healthy-living/
This will be the only RFP for 2017. Due: April 14, 2017 at 3 PM ET.
