H2O to Grow Grant Fund
A community-government partnership to increase water access and healthy food production in Wyandotte County.
In 2013, The H2O to Grow Coalition announced a new grant fund to install water taps at community gardens and urban farms. Overseen by the Food Systems Action Team and Kansas City Community Gardens, the fund is the result of a unique partnership between the Unified Government’s Departments of Public Health and Public Works and the H2O to Grow Coalition. The three work together to:
- Increase healthy food grown in Wyandotte County
- Use Land Bank land for community benefit
- Manage empty lots to reduce stormwater run-off
Application materials for the 2017-2018 grant cycle will be available soon!
