Social Innovation for Missouri (SIM) is a new funding program established in July 2010 by Missouri Foundation for Health following approval of funding from the federal government’s Social Innovation Fund (SIF). Funds can be distributed across Missouri, and not just in the MFH service region. SIM funding will support communities’ efforts to expand physical activity options, encourage healthier food choices, and reduce overall tobacco use. Special emphasis will be on helping low-income communities and underserved residents. Concept papers are due Sept 22, 2010. For more info, click here.
