Health Grants

There are currently 2 grant funding opportunities available from SOI: Healthy Athletes and Health Impact.
Our new Health Impact Grant combines Healthy Communities, Fitness, Health Messenger, Stakeholder Summits, and Evaluation grants into a single grant, with one combined application and a consolidated mid-year and year-end report. At this time, Healthy Athletes® will remain a separate application.
