Call for Collaboration:

The Community Project

The Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health is pleased to announce funding available for “The Community Project.” This project unites community leaders and residents to define, design and create outdoor public spaces that bring people together.

Here’s How it Works.

The “Call for Collaboration” invites residents of any city or town in Idaho to come together to demonstrate their interest in creating a healthy public space in their community. This could be an outdoor gathering space, pavilion, splash pad or park equipment.

In the spring, The Foundation will select up to five communities to participate in the inaugural Community Project. Participants will walk through a professionally guided process to help them define their wants and needs, select a project type that meets them, and design a space that strengthens and enhances their community. Depending on the complexity of the project, construction could begin as early as summer 2022.
