Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL Grants)

HEAL grants provide funding to prevent chronic disease by increasing long-term access to active lifestyle and healthy eating for Clackamas County residents, reduce the prevalence of chronic disease, and empower residents to take steps toward improving their health.

Overview

The Public Health Division of the Clackamas County Health, Housing, & Human Services (H3S) Department funds community-based projects that reduce chronic disease through healthy eating and active living among county residents.

Grant recipients initiate community projects focused on the first goal of the County’s Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) – "Develop systems, resources, approaches, and policies to minimize health risks, prevent chronic disease and support healthy lifestyles." The CHIP encourages Clackamas County residents, in collaboration with Public Health Division staff, to engage in activities that will promote a healthier Clackamas County.
