Grantees will each receive funding, mentorship, and opportunities to contribute to public awareness campaigns. Grantees will participate in Social Impact Hub activities, established to provide technical assistance, mentoring, and other support services that will assist the grantees through all phases of their creative process to develop and implement campaign projects.

Grantees will be expected to communicate, connect and support meaningful engagement with designated California Healthy Places Index communities over 12 months. Grantees will implement projects in San Diego and Imperial counties.
