The initial CDEP Funding has been officially closed.
Thankfully, through further Partnership we have been tasked with finding 4 organizations that aim to Promote Healthy, Active, and Nourished lifestyles in eligible communities.
The Wellness Equity Program CFHL (Cal Fresh Healthy Living) is funding community enrichment projects that increase the consumption, access, and security of healthy food and beverages, while also increasing physical activity in environments where people live, learn, and play. Recipients will serve communities that are SNAP participants and low-income individuals eligible to receive SNAP benefits or other means-tested Federal assistance programs, which means having a household income of less than or equal to 185% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
Examples of possible projects may include, but are not limited to:
Making fresh produce more accessible
Expanding or enhancing community gardens or local farms
Increasing access to physical activity opportunities
Helping kids have healthy, happy lifestyles.
Obesity prevention projects
Affordable fitness classes
Anything else your community may need that aligns with these goals!
We are seeking projects that offer creative solutions to improve health equity, have a high community impact, promote healthy, active, and nourished lifestyles, and ideally, will be sustainable beyond the initial funding.
You are a great fit for the Wellness Equity Program’s Healthy Living Subcontractor Funding Program if you are:
Based in San Diego County. Project serves eligible populations (described below)
An integral part of your community in sharing knowledge and information relative to healthy living and increasing knowledge about well-being.
Have a clear idea about a project that aligns with our program.
