"The whole effort is really built around healthy living," said Rye YMCA Executive Director Gregg Howells.
The Rye Y provides a number of programs that could benefit from the grant. Howells said preventative health is a focus and the money could go to fund its LIVESTRONG and Diabetes Prevention programs and possibly fund a community or school garden to promote healthy eating.
"It's a pretty good amount of money," said Howells. "We intend to put it toward improving health and awareness in the community."
