Caswell Community Impact Projects Applications Open!

Middle Border Forward is partnering with Caswell Family Medical Center and The Health Collaborative’s Caswell Chapter to provide an opportunity for Caswell County residents to “be the change” where they live and work.

The newly announced Caswell Community Impact Project initiative will provide up to $1,000 in financial and technical support to individuals and small groups who seek to implement small-scale projects to benefit their community.  Applications are available online HERE and open until March 15.  Up to ten projects will be selected for funding.

“Caswell Family Medical Center is excited to be a part of this initiative,” says CEO William Crumpton, “We firmly believe in the power that partnership can produce and look forward to engaging the community at large in ways that will bolster Caswell County’s momentum in improving the quality of life and health for those that live, work and visit here.”

Middle Border Forward has offered similar support for small-scale projects through its Community 500 program since 2017 and sees this as an opportunity to allow Caswell County residents to dream even bigger.

“We cannot wait to see what the passionate citizens of Caswell County can do to ‘be the change’ in their communities with $1,000,” says Jennifer Gregory, executive director, “Based on the projects we’ve seen in the past, I know this is going to be great!”

To qualify, applicants must live and/or work in Caswell County and project ideas must fit into one of four key focus areas:  healthy eating, active living, healthy spaces & leadership/capacity building.

Funds for the Caswell Community Impact Project initiative is provided through a grant from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation.
