Degree® Deodorant and Blue Zones® are partnering to introduce an innovative, joint grant program to help communities get moving naturally for generations to come.
Communities throughout the United States now realize that growing a program in active transportation is an essential way to help all citizens live fuller, healthier, longer lives. The #MadeToMove grant program from Degree® Deodorant and Blue Zones, LLC, is a competitive funding opportunity created to assist communities in advancing active transportation through local project development, implementation and supporting policies. With the ultimate goal of promoting more walkable, bikeable, transit-friendly environments for all ages, incomes and abilities, this funding opportunity will be awarded to five mid-sized communities in the United States. Each community will receive $100,000 plus technical assistance from the Blue Zones, LLC, built environment team. The funding period is divided into two phases, outlined at https://www.bluezones.com/made-to-move/
The grant application timeline closes May 31, 2019.
