WATERTOWN — Excellus BlueCross BlueShield announced Monday that it has made available up to $25,000 for community health grant awards.

Eligible organizations include nonprofit agencies in Excellus’s eight-county region, which includes Jefferson, Lewis, Oswego and St. Lawrence counties.

Agencies may receive up to $4,000 for programs aimed at improving the health of a specific population in its community.

According to an Excellus news release, organizations should offer programs that either reduce incidence of specific diseases, offer communitywide or group-specific health education or promote wellness.

Awards will be based on the scope of need, the goals of the program and the number of people to benefit from the program.

The deadline to apply is June 9. Awards will be distributed in the fall.
