Across the region, organizations with successful obesity programs are improving the health of our residents. Grass-roots obesity programs are the driving force behind the HEAL Appalachia Community Grants Program.  The program provides grants to community organizations to support new efforts and expand existing efforts to reduce childhood obesity.  These funds are awarded through a region-wide competitive process.  We welcome applications from community organizations, faith-based organizations, schools, employers, and health care professionals located in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.
