LINCOLN COUNTY - Lincoln County wants to know how clean your school or workplace is. Now, they'll have the money to find out.
Wisconsin Public Health gave the Lincoln County Health Department the CHANGE grant. Community Health Assessment and Group Evaluation, or CHANGE Grant, focuses on improving health in five areas, from schools to community organizations. They will then take the data to see what can be improved.
"We're going to kind of create that little action plan to help maybe get some programs in to help improve the community. That's our ultimate goal," says Wendy Hilmershausen, CHANGE Project Manager.
The grant was awarded for 10,000 dollars. Part of the money will go to funding those programs. The entire process is in its first month.
"This grant will be for six months. It will take about a month or two to collect our information. It will take another couple months to get the information together, to present it, and then we'll be going on from there," says Wendy Hilmershausen.
Lincoln County was one of only 12 counties to receive the grant throughout the state.
