It was announced this week that each of Northern Kentucky’s five LiveWell pilot communities has received a $5,000 grant from Skyward, the organization charged with developing and managing the five-year strategic myNKY plan.
 
The so-called Jumpstart grants will support each community’s action plans, with components that include:
 
  • Establishing and maintaining walking routes;
  • Supporting local fresh produce markets;
  • Making improvements and repairs to public spaces;
  • And other neighborhood improvement efforts.
 The LiveWell NKY program kicked off earlier this year, with designated ambassadors in each community dedicated to leading engagement and reporting the program’s progress.
