Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota Rural Health Grant Program: “Official Sponsor of Recess”
Funding Period: January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013
The Center for Rural Health is pleased to announce Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) will again make funding available for their rural health grant program, with a changed emphasis on addressing North Dakota’s escalating problems associated with a sedentary life-style, such as obesity, heart disease, and cancer.
BCBSND seeks to support providers (a provider is defined as a health care entity that provides services to patients) and their communities by offering grants that stimulate new thinking around providers championing activities and programs as part of its recent launch as the “Official Sponsor of Recess” – promoting daily, physical activities as a break for all ages of North Dakotans.
Financial support, based on established criteria, will be awarded to those applicants whose proposals benefit rural North Dakotans and their communities to embrace more physical activity, and highlight the concerns of increasing obesity statistics in the state.
Applicants are asked to submit a complete grant proposal to be received (not postmarked by), no later than4:00 pm CT, Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
