First Round of Community Green Grants Provided by Deeply Rooted

Deeply Rooted, an initiative led by Gina South and Nicole Thomas of the Urban Health Lab, awarded the first round of community green grants, totaling $51,000 to 22 community leaders and organizations. The grants provide funding for communities to invest in their neighborhoods in the form of greenspace so residents can benefit in ways such as reduced crime, improved heart health, and less depressive symptoms.
