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. The 2019 deadline is October 15.

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.

We will also consider funding programs that increase access to healthy food and/or promote healthy eating and physically active lifestyles, especially if the program advances a larger community goal.
