A group formed to improve public health in Washington County is one of six in Maryland invited to compete as a partner with the state for national grant money.
The Coalition for a Healthier Washington County has been asked to apply for a "Turning Point" grant that would give the group $20,000 a year for three years.
Turning Point is supported by the W.K. Kellogg and The Robert Wood Johnson foundations. Funds are earmarked for planning innovative public health protection programs for the 21st century, through state and local partnerships.
