The Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas is now accepting applications for large and small grants to organizations to implement health improvement programs in Arkansas.

Applications for $1,000 mini-grants will be accepted February 1 through April 30. Applicants will be notified of mini-grant awards within approximately 15 days. Regular grants of $5,000 to $150,000 have an application deadline of July 15 and will be awarded in November to fund health improvement programs during 2015.

Any public charity, public school, government agency, or non-profit hospital in Arkansas is eligible to apply. Grants are not made to individuals. Funds must be used in an effort that produces some positive health outcome for Arkansans. The grant may be used for general operational or specific program support, for an existing or new program.

Information about the grants and the online application submission process can be found at www.BlueAndYouFoundationArkansas.org.
