Community Transformation Grants
Every three years, Idaho communities are awarded Community Transformation Grants — up to $250,000
—to initiate projects that improve the health of our children by increasing their physical activity and access to healthy, affordable foods.
The goal of these grants? To initiate projects that improve the health of our children by increasing their physical activity and access to healthy, affordable foods.
Community Transformation Grants are unique. When a community is selected, the High Five team of experts works closely with the community to help them think bigger and, ultimately, co-create solutions that can lead to long-lasting change. By building coalitions between schools, city hall, community groups, businesses and others, these Grants serve as a catalyst to seeing more opportunities, attracting additional funding, and transforming the community for the better.
We listen to the community needs, understand community assets and craft a strategy to increase physical activity and access to healthy food for all children.
Changing Lives One Community at a Time
