The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded $2 million in grants to the national office of the YMCA. The grants are part of the Steps to a HealthierUS initiative, which aims to reduce the burden of diabetes, overweight, obesity and asthma.
The $2 million in grants, distributed over 4 years, will be awarded in two stages. The first stage will bring together Steps-funded communities, local YMCAs, HHS experts and other national organizations to create local events built around existing YMCA programs. The second stage will allow local YMCAs in Steps communities to apply for minigrants based on their proposals. For more information, visit www.healthierus.gov.
