Healthier Jupiter to Fund Innovative Health Ideas through Second Mini-Grant Program

Healthier Jupiter is seeking innovative health ideas to fund through its second Mini-Grant Program. The goal of the Program is to engage the Greater Jupiter community in creating innovative approaches to diabetes prevention and management. Healthier Jupiter will award up to ten $2500 mini-grants to qualified not-for-profit/civic organizations in our community to pilot ideas that will improve our collective community health in one of three focus areas: increasing access to affordable healthier food choices; helping individuals become more physically active on a regular basis; or promoting awareness of diabetes risks and accessing necessary medical care.

Interested not-for-profit/civic organizations must attend a mandatory grant workshop on Thursday morning, September 28, 2017 at the Town of Jupiter Community Center. Farmer Jay (Jason McCobb) from Farmer Jay Pure Organics will be the keynote speaker at this workshop. Professional grant writers will offer breakout sessions to assist attendees in putting their ideas on paper. Anyone may attend the workshop, but only proposals from qualified not-for-profit/civic organizations will be considered. If you have an idea and are not currently part of a not-for-profit or civic organization, please contact Healthier Jupiter. View Grant Guidelines.

Healthier Jupiter is a community initiative addressing health and quality of life issues starting with diabetes. Diabetes was selected because promoting healthy lifestyles can lower diabetes risk and complications as well as many other chronic diseases. Healthier Jupiter is funded through a generous grant from The Palm Healthcare Foundation as part of its Healthier Together Initiative.
