From the Healthy Environments Partnership:
Do you have an idea for how to create a more beautiful and physically active environment in your community?
For example, have you ever wanted to plant a community garden, create artwork along a greenway, or host a walk & talk program in your neighborhood to bring policy makers out where residents could share local concerns?
If so, the Greenway Mini-grants can help make it happen!
Mini-grants of up to $1000 are being awarded to community groups developing sustainable projects and activities that 1) engage community residents, 2) build local ownership of the greenways, and 3) create social and physical environments conducive to active living and heart health.
Mini-grants will be awarded to Detroiters working to achieve these goals through creative community-based projects along the Conner Creek Greenway, Brightmoor’s Lyndon Greenway, or the Corktown-Mexicantown Greenway.
For more information about applying for a mini-grant contact: Deedee Varick, Health Educator, 734-615-3956, firstname.lastname@example.org
