Our Projects

Our first year of Legacy Projects went to organizations located throughout New York State. In subsequent years we accepted applications from across the country and funded projects in Virginia and North Carolina. We encouraged Legacy Grantees to address policy, systems, and environmental changes related to diabetes disparities. As a result, Legacy Project grants supported activities such as training community members to conduct community assessments and present findings to elected officials, initiating a community supported agriculture program, and training teachers to integrate physical activity and nutrition education into regular classroom lessons.
