"Across Minnesota, communities are working together through the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) to expand healthy eating and active living opportunities with multiple strategies, across multiple settings and multiple sectors. SHIP spends $17.5 million per year supporting grant funding to local community partners in all 87 counties and 10 tribal nations.
SHIP grants support locally controlled community leadership teams, which have linked with nearly 3000 active partner sites, including schools, workplaces, communities, health care facilities and child care facilities, while supporting and leveraging the work of a variety of partners such as community groups, schools, employers, farmers, chambers of commerce, hospitals and healthcare facilities, city planners, county boards, tribal officials and more."
