Eligible projects include community events and activities focused on a healthy start, as well as feeding programs, backpack programs, events, and outreach.
Applications for the West Virginia’s Promise Healthy Start Mini-Grant Project will be accepted between August 12th, 2019 -October 7th, 2019 to be considered for funding. Activities must include an element of volunteer recruitment as well as outreach in the community.”
