Purpose:
Our Approach:

The Aetna Foundation’s Regional Grants Fund Community Wellness Initiatives That Serve Those Who Are Most At Risk For Poor Health -- Low-income, Underserved Or Minority Populations. A Healthy Diet And Regular Exercise Can Help Prevent Obesity And Many Chronic Conditions. That's Why We Focus On Efforts That Promote Eating Fresh Fruits And Vegetables And Being Active.

Grants Will Target Communities Where Healthy Food Can Be Difficult To Buy, And Where Social And Environmental Factors May Limit People’s Ability To Be Physically Active.

Regional Grants Are Defined As:

Work That Is Important For One Or More Of Our Priority Cities And States Projects That Impact The Local Community.

Our 2013 Regional Grants Will Focus On:

Healthy Food Choices - Programs That Provide Nutrition Education And Help Increase The Availability Of Affordable Fresh Fruits And Vegetables In Underserved Communities
Healthy Activity - Programs That Provide Opportunities For Physical Activity In Underserved Communities
