Healthy Vision Community Awards
Institute: National Eye Institute (NEI)
Working in Appalachia and Harlem, serving toddlers and seniors, the 2011 Healthy Vision Community Awards (HVCA) winners are committed to making sure eye health and vision are priorities in their communities. HVCA, sponsored by NEI, is a unique program that provides awards of up to $10,000 to make a difference in communities across the nation by supporting grassroots eye health education. This seed money supplies the spark that gets projects started, and the projects are then sustained through community partnerships.
