Healthy Communities Committee
A group of 40 stakeholders work together on grant applications for their community.
[In reference to the community getting involved and being supportive] We have an active community base in partnerships. We have Healthy Communities Committee which has been meeting now since the late ‘80s and that group has about 40 stakeholders at the table. So if we need grant funding or something, it’s easier to go that route. We’ve done some fairly substantial grants. We had a $4 million grant for youth outreach and then we had $100,000 for drugs and then we had another $68,000 this year for drugs – basically opioid, so for a small community, we’ve done well on the grant side of things.
