RECreate Grant

The RECreate grant provides up to $5,000.00 in grant funding to a maximum of one grant per organization. Please note, the RECreate Grant replaced the Healthy Community Grant for 2020. 

The goal of the RECreate Grant is to enable healthy living champions to overcome the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic to support physical activity, active living, and/or healthy eating within the context of recreation at the community level.

Communities ChooseWell is excited to announce the 2020 RECreate Grant recipients! Thank you to all who applied, we wish we were able to fund all your amazing ideas!
