July 2016 Newsletter
En Español por favor!
We heard from many of you that having our strategies for building healthy, equitable communities translated into Spanish would help you better reach the Latino community. We’re excited to announce that we now have our full strategic plan available in Spanish! Please help us distribute our plan, “Estrategias para construir comunidades saludables y equitativas” to your networks. We also have printed copies available. Email us and we’ll send you some to distribute!

How would you make San Mateo County healthier? Next month you can apply for our annual Community Implementation Funding and advance health where we live, learn, work, and play. Mark your calendars for our:

- In-person Building Healthy, Equitable Communities Forum and RFP Info Session Monday, August 29 to learn more about how we’re implementing our new Strategic Plan, view presentations from the 2016 funding grantees, get an in-depth review of the RFP and ask staff specific questions about project ideas, eligibility and the application process.
Check out our website for more resources on how to create a stellar application using our online application system this year and download the funding flyer. See the great work accomplished by our 2015 recipients here.
