Active Design Grant

In collaboration with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Partnership to Improve Community Health, Citizens Committee is awarding grants to promote physical activity and healthy living among the city’s youth, from pre-k age through high school.

The grants will support the efforts of early childhood centers and public schools to incorporate active design projects that will foster physical activity and healthy living. Priority will be given to centers and schools that serve primarily low-income children. 

20 grants of $4,000 will be awarded to projects in public schools, kindergarten through high school. 
20 grants of $2,500 will be awarded to projects in early childhood settings.
