The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNY), on behalf of the Harlem Neighborhood Health Action Centers, is excited to announce that we are now accepting proposals for projects that promote the built environment and/or physical activity in East Harlem. Health in Action grants are designed to ensure that community health needs are being addressed by community-driven solutions, and funding coming into East Harlem is reaching organizations rooted in our community. This year’s Health in Action grants are supported by the New York State Health Foundation, who are specifically interested in promoting a healthy, active built environment.
For the purpose of these grants, the built environment is defined as the physical elements that make up our public spaces (like streets, sidewalks, public buildings, parks, and gardens). Health in Action projects should make it safer, easier, and more enjoyable for East Harlem residents to be healthy and active.
Up to 4 grantees will receive up to $10,000 each. Projects will start in December 2019 and must be completed by November 2020.
Questions must be directed to Ariana Holland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals are due to FPHNY by email to Ariana Holland at email@example.com by August 16th, 2019 at 11:59 PM.
