Application Open for Let’s Go! 3.0 Mini-Grant
South Carolina’s communities have the first of many opportunities to apply for mini-grants to fund small-scale projects that are needed to help catapult their healthy eating and active living initiatives. Eat Smart Move More South Carolina will award Let’s Go! 3.0 mini-grants over the next three years that will increase the capacity of community coalitions in South Carolina to identify and address barriers to healthy eating and active living.
Applications are being accepted now for the first round of mini-grants until July 15. The application process is open to community coalitions and organizations that need assistance in implementing policy, systems, and environmental changes that will increase access to healthy, affordable foods and safe places to be physically active. The mini-grants, up to $5,000, can be used to implement projects, such as adding bike racks downtown, beautifying neighborhood parks or trails, or supporting local farmers’ markets.
For more information about the Let’s Go! 3.0 initiative and to submit an application, visit www.eatsmartmovemoresc.org.
These opportunities are funded through a grant from the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
