We strive to increase access to healthy foods and physical activity by providing technical assistance and opportunities to communities around the state. We believe that lasting change can happen at the community level through partnerships, evidence-based strategies, and small amounts of funding.
Between 2018 and 2020, ESMMSC funded Let’s Go! 3.0 mini-grants in amounts up to $5,000 to 46 communities across the state. The mini-grants were used to fund healthy eating and active living projects that support policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) changes. This mini-grant opportunity was made possible through a grant provided to ESMMSC by the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
