Welcome Aboard for SHIP 2.0!

It's been a busy fall for us SHIP staff! We are excited to annouce that Faribault, Martin and Watonwan Counties have collaborated with Cottonwood and Jackson Counties to write the grant application for SHIP 2.0. We are even more excited to announce that our application was successful and all five counties will receive SHIP funding through the Minnesota Department of Health over the next 18 months! Here is some of the press we recently had:

This is very exciting because it allows us the opportunity to continue doing what we love to do - helping to create healthier communities in all of our counties!

Along with a new round of SHIP funds, comes a new round of potential mini-grantees and partners. We are currently accepting mini-grant site applications for the following areas:

Community Physical Activity- Active Transportation
School Physical Activity - Safe Routes to School or Active School Day
School Nutrition - Farm to School or School Nutrition Policies
Healthy Childcare - Physical Activity and Nutrition
Tobacco-Free College Campuses
