Deeply rooted February

Deeply Rooted is a community-academic collaborative that uses the healing power of nature to promote health and wellbeing in Black and Brown Philadelphia neighborhoods. Deeply Rooted is led by the Penn Urban Health Lab along with our lead partners Southwest CDC, ACHIEVEability, Sister Clara Muhammad CDC, Community of Compassion CDC, and Boost CDC, and other community organizations in West and Southwest Philadelphia. We will be accepting proposals for the Community Green Grants Program, designed to support residents and leaders in coming together to care for, celebrate in and appreciate the nature in our communities starting September 8, 2023. Youth-focused programming will be prioritized, all other applications will be considered. 

Proposed grant activities and programs must directly benefit one of eight Deeply Rooted communities – Kingsessing, Paschall, Elmwood, Cobbs Creek, Haddington, Mill Creek, Carroll Park, or Belmont. Priority will be given to applicants located within these neighborhoods.
