Partner Awards

Our Purpose

Would you like to implement healthy change in your workplace, school or our community to encourage healthy living?
Crow Wing Energized and Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) support our community and workplaces by offering partner award opportunities. Partner Awards are available for community members to implement projects that align with the Crow Wing Energized guiding principles and initiatives.

The SHIP invests in creating opportunities in partnership with communities that lead to equitable, healthy and positive conditions that promote the health and well-being of all Minnesotans. Crow Wing County SHIP works locally to support these efforts.

SHIP works to prevent chronic conditions by supporting the implementation of action plans that create sustainable Policy, System and/or Environmental (PSE) changes. Such changes expand opportunities for healthy eating, breastfeeding, physical activity, and tobacco-free living as well as support well-being.

Partner Awards ultimately require approval from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), which oversees SHIP.

Preference will be given to new applications.
