PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Do you have an idea on how to create healthy athletic activity for the children of Newport County? How about increasing good health habits, building confidence and a sense of achievement? Applications for community grants from the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund at Newport Hospital are now available.
This community grant program is for residents and organizations in Newport County focused on building a healthier community for our kids.

To date, more than $291,000 has been awarded to Newport County individuals and organizations.
The grant is open for applications from March 1 through March 31. Applications will be reviewed in April and funding awards will be announced in May 2017.
