Smoky Valley Healthy Living Fund

The Smoky Valley Healthy Living Fund was established in response to the Kansas Health Foundation’s second chapter of the Giving Resources to our World (GROW II) match grant challenge. Grants from this fund support the public health of the Smoky Valley area. Public health is defined as the protection and promotion of the health and well-being of individuals and their communities through encouragement of healthy lifestyles, behaviors and environments.

All non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply as well as groups and individuals working on a charitable community project. For-profit organizations will not be considered unless the request is for a charitable project. Grants will be limited to projects within Ellsworth County.

Funding for this grant is also supported by the Kansas Health Foundation Fund for Smoky Valley.

All applicants will need to fill out a grant application through our online grant system.
