Municipalities Can now apply to RECEIVE up to $250k per project to transform public spaces in response to covid-19 

The Healthy Communities Initiative encourages community-level innovation and improvements in the quality of life for residents. As local communities continue to adapt to COVID-19, local governments and community partners across the country in urban, rural and remote communities are discovering new ways to keep residents safe and healthy, support economic recovery and rebuild communities to be pandemic-resilient. For this new municipal funding program, the minimum funding amount for projects is $5,000 and the maximum funding amount is $250,000 for each project.
