Opportunities for physical activity and access to healthy food are essential for health at all ages and stages of life. Many neighborhoods throughout Maricopa County have limited access to spaces for children, youth, adults, and seniors to easily choose to be active and to eat more nutritious food. By opening doors and expanding access to existing facilities, we can improve health and well-being across the community
Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) is offering grant funding up to $5000, per site, to increase the number of spaces in under-served areas, so those community residents can:
- Play, exercise, and take part in recreational activities
- Grow healthy food and participate in nutrition related activities
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
- Private Businesses
- Faith-Based Organizations
- Community-Based Organizations
- Local Government Agencies
- Owners of Private Property
