|Healthy Communities Incentive Grants|
Only communities that have received certification through the Certified Healthy Oklahoma program in 2013 are eligible to apply for Incentive Grant funds in 2014. After achieving certification and submitting documentation to verify that specific criteria have been met, communities may be awarded grant funds based on the community’s population size and incentive level achieved.
All incentive grant applications should be submitted a minimum of 90 calendar days prior to any regularly scheduled meeting of the TSET Board of Directors. TSET cannot guarantee that every proposal submitted according to the timeline will be considered at the next board meeting. The TSET Board of Directors has the discretion to determine whether proposals submitted less than 90 calendar days prior to a regularly scheduled board meeting will be heard at the upcoming meeting.
Deadlines for Submission for Possible Consideration in 2014
