Community Partner Awards

Sherburne County Health and Human Services is pleased to announce a Community Partner Award (formerly known as mini-grants) opportunity in 2023.  Funding is intended to support the implementation of action plans that create sustainable policy, system and/or environment (PSE) changes that expand opportunities for healthy eating, breastfeeding, physical activity, tobacco-free living, well-being, and community recovery.  To be eligible, your organization must serve Sherburne County residents. New applicants, as well as those who have been previously funded are welcome to apply. If previously funded, we will not accept grant applications for the same project that was funded in prior years. 

The Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) invests in creating opportunities in partnership with communities that lead to equitable, healthy, and positive conditions that promote the health and well-being of all Minnesotans. Sherburne County is a recipient of the SHIP grant and works locally to support these efforts. Additional information about SHIP initiatives in Sherburne County may be found HERE. Community Health Boards, such as Sherburne County, have received funding from the CDC for COVID response, vaccine implementation, and community recovery.
