"Promoting and establishing healthy behaviors for younger people is more effective, and often easier, than efforts to change unhealthy behaviors already established in adults. The Healthy Living Grant Program supports health education programs to develop school and community-based solutions to behavioral health challenges. The target audience of the project must be an underserved and/or at-risk population between the ages of 2-21." "Educational and awareness programs about the dangers of prescription drug abuse, targeted to children, parents or schools" are the focus of this year's grant allocation.
