People with disabilities face unique challenges to maintaining a healthy weight, including physical limitations, inaccessible fitness activities and limited healthy eating choices and exercise options. The Health and Disability Project at the National Association of County and City Health Officials invites local health departments, partnered with local stakeholder organizations, to apply for two new grant opportunities. Both grants focus on healthy living promotion for people with disabilities.
Share this with your local health department, and partner with us to improve the health and wellness of people with disabilities in your community. Applications are due May 16, 2011 at 5 p.m. EDT.
