Marketing and Grant Recognition Guidelines

Congratulations on your grant award from Interact for Health.  Your organization is helping to make Cincinnati one of the healthiest regions in the country and we are pleased to support your efforts.

Please take a moment to review these recognition guidelines with all staff members who handle marketing, graphic design, website management, signage, press relations, etc.  We realize that your staff may encounter challenges as they work to provide recognition to a variety of supporters and sponsors, and that you may have ideas for new ways to provide
recognition.  We encourage you to think of our Communications staff as a resource. Please feel free to contact us if you want to discuss the implementation of any of these policies.  We want to be collaborative partners in this process and are happy to review materials, provide alternate versions of our logo, and brainstorm solutions.

We believe that this recognition of Interact for Health's support of your work is vital to sustaining and growing support for promoting health and wellness in our community.
