Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Florida nonprofit organizations and local government agencies for activities that encourage healthy lifestyles in eligible regions. Funding is intended to support projects that promote improvements in diet and exercise. Eligible projects should benefit residents of Broward County.

Neighborhoods and communities can reinvent themselves to increase physical activity and access to healthy food to improve the health of residents.

A successful project will present creative approaches for adults to be active and make healthy choices that impact the two main contributors of chronic disease: physical inactivity and poor diet. Your project must include one or both of the following:

1. Structured physical activity that is easily accessible to residents and takes place over an eight-month or longer time period.  What assets or elements exist or need to exist within a neighborhood or community to encourage physical activity? Are there new opportunities to make physical activity prominent? Think about fun and engaging ways to inspire residents to participate and make a commitment to improve their health long-term. For example:

  • A jazz in the park event adds a pre or post activity that engages residents in physical activity like yoga, jazzercise or tai chi class.
  • A weekly community game night incorporates a Zumba class to get players moving.
  • A neighborhood that makes itself more conducive to walking, biking or adult sports activities to reduce sedentary lifestyles.

2. Promote healthy eating habits that will inspire residents to take charge of their health.  How can your project encourage residents to make healthy food choices? What doesn’t exist that needs to exist so that residents access healthy food. For example:

  • Establish pop-up farmers markets in neighborhoods that don’t have one to make fresh foods easily accessible.
  • Start a garden club to grow fresh fruits and vegetables for the community’s consumption.
  • Offer community cooking classes where the participants will dine together eating their healthy prepared meal.

Measurable outcomes:

  • Number of adults engaged in physical activity consistently for the duration of the project.
  • Number of adults that report a change in eating habits for the duration of the project.
  • Number of adults that report overall health improvement for the duration of the project.
