Community Based Health Grants

Healthy Communities"

Communities throughout Vermont are building and implementing comprehensive health and wellness projects that promote healthy behavior - including better nutrition, increased physical activity, and disease prevention. The Vermont Department of Health periodically issues Requests For Proposals (RFP) to support implementation of these programs and initiatives.
