Healthy Lifestyles Coalition (HLC) Grant Program

The Healthy Lifestyles Coalition (HLC) began in late 2012 through a grant awarded by the Conrad and Virginia Klee Foundation. In 2017, the United Way of Broome County began funding the program as a signature Collective Impact Initiative. This framework involves a dynamic and collaborative set of partnerships with other agencies in order to achieve a shared goal. HLC and its partners understand and recognize that without engaged community members and agencies working together, real change is not sustainable.

The HLC’s long-term goal is to reduce the prevalence of obesity in Broome County by empowering neighborhood residents to adopt healthy lifestyles and achieve positive health outcomes.

The HLC is seeking proposals for programming that will advocate and encourage the adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviors. The most successful proposals will include dynamic, creative and data-driven interventions that promote physical activity and socialization, create a safe and clean environment and programs that support the social, emotional and mental health of all youth, individuals, and families.

Organizations that provide programs/services throughout Broome County can apply as long as the services are primarily benefiting the North and East Side Binghamton residents. There are various locations throughout the community that may be available for organizations to hold programming and provides services to participants.
