The Heart Truth® Community Action Program
Since 2009, The Heart Truth Community Action Program aims to equip community organizations to assist women in identifying personal risk factors for heart disease and motivating them to take action to lower their risk.
Grants are awarded by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health as part of a public-private partnership with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) on behalf of The Heart Truth in support of women's heart health education and research.
Funding for the Community Action Program is provided by the FNIH through donations from individuals and corporations including The Heart Truth partners Diet Coke, Belk Department Stores, and Swarovski.
The application period for 2013 grants has closed.
Awardees will be announced in April.
