Community Foundation to Host LiveWell Grant Information Sessions


So far, the Douglas County Community Foundation has 20 people representing 15 different organizations signed-up to attend LiveWell Lawrence grant information sessions.

If you missed the news reports about these sessions, they will be held January 28 at 4:00 p.m. and January 29 at noon in the Lawrence Public Library auditorium. You will find more details at www.dccfoundation.org.

The sessions are required for anyone planning to apply for a grant.

Please keep in mind that funded activities must help the community make progress on one or more goals outlined in the LiveWell Lawrence Community Plan:

  1. Make healthy foods more available and unhealthy foods less available in public venues such as schools, child care centers and city and county buildings;

  2. Produce and consume more local foods, and expand the number of places where local foods are available;

  3. Offer all children 30 minutes a day of quality physical activity during school hours, and 30 additional minutes outside of school hours;

  4. Design all streets with safe access for all users--walkers, bicyclists, wheeled-device users, transit riders and drivers.

I'm happy to chat with anyone by phone or e-mail about ideas for grant-funded projects.
