CITY OF WEISER SELECTED FOR COMMUNITY PROJECT GRANT

The Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health is awarding The Community Project grant to the City of Weiser. The grant is to help the city unite community leaders and residents to create an outdoor public space that brings people together. The grant includes up to $85,000 in funding for the space, plus technical assistance to the city and an event to celebrate the project.

Weiser was one of two cities chosen for The Community Project grant, which was open to applications from Idaho cities that had completed the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health’s Community Health Academy. The City of Dayton is the other recipient of The Community Project in 2024.

“We have built a strong relationship with the City of Weiser over the past few years and have seen a dedication to community health and bringing generations together,” said Courtney Frost, Senior Program Officer, at the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health. “We’re excited to work with the city on The Community Project.”

“The City of Weiser is very excited to receive funds from the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health to transform our parks,” Weiser Mayor Randy Hibberd said. “The idea of enhancing the parks as a gathering place originally started with meetings held with the Weiser High School student body officers and class officers. They had great ideas. The city is grateful for the opportunity to get input from the community the make Weiser an even better place to live, work, and play.”

The City of Weiser will begin working with the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation this month to begin a professionally guided process that will help the city engage residents to determine the design and functionality of the parks in the city.
