For the fifth year in a row, Healthier Jupiter will offer $2,500 Mini-Grants to impact the health of our community. The goal of the Mini-Grant program is to fund projects that address healthy eating, active living and mental health in new, innovative and community-centered ways. These projects will create lasting and transformative change in the health, wellness and success of the greater Jupiter community. Not-for-profits, government agencies, civic organizations, public schools, school-based groups, houses of worship, businesses and individuals are encouraged to submit applications. Funds available will pilot ideas to improve our collective community health in one or more focus areas:

  1. Increase availability and affordability of fresh, healthy foods;

  2. Help individuals become more physically active on a regular basis;

  3. Encourage people to engage mentally to practice healthy behaviors; and/or

  4. Change the built environment and policies that promote equitable health opportunities.

Applications open September 30th. Grants are due 5:00PM on Friday, October 30th. To learn more visit www.healthierjupiter.org/grants.

This year grants will be reviewed by a Grant Review Committee made up of a representative group of Jupiter community leaders. Then we will have a virtual celebration on Thursday, November 19th from 5:30PM to 6:30PM on Facebook Live!
