Healthy Youth/Healthy Seniors Manistee Fund

Field of Interest

The Healthy Youth / Healthy Seniors Fund was created from payment received from the State of Michigan on interest earned from tobacco settlements.  The fund contributions were divided among Michigan's 65 certified Community Foundations based on the state population data for youth under the age of 18 years and seniors over age of 65 years living in that area.  

Recognizing the negative health impact of tobacco use, and in an attempt to educate citizens of all ages on its dangers, the Healthy Youth/ Healthy Seniors Fund supports innovative programs that support healthy lifestyles for youth and senior citizens in Manistee County.
