DULUTH, MN -- St. Louis County is seeking proposals from community-based organizations that address mental health, youth substance abuse, and food insecurity.
Projects that directly focus on these health priorities could receive funding from the county for one year. Funding ranges between $20,000 and $100,000.
In order to qualify, projects must take place within St. Louis County, serve St. Louis County residents, and occur between Oct. 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2021.
The initiative does not have to be new to qualify, but it does need to focus on at least one of the three health priorities listed above.
Public Health Divison Director Amy Westbrook said the focus on the pandemic should not detract from other community health priorities.
"Much of the work we do is in partnership with organizations and agencies across the county, and this is another example of how we can work together to promote healthy communities in St. Louis County,” Westbrook said.
The proposal deadline is Aug. 30, 2020.
