LiveWell Community Wellness Grants

LiveWell Community Wellness Grants aim to support the health of Douglas County residents by creating conditions that lead to healthy eating and physically active lifestyles. We conduct one grant cycle each year.

We seek to support lasting measures that improve residents’ health. For this reason, we will favor projects that create long-term policy, systems and environmental change.
