Prince George's County is considering pitching the state of Maryland for millions of dollars for a healthly neighborhood program, The Gazette reported.
The Health Enterprise Zones were authorized earlier this year by the General Assembly.
Under the plan, the state will provide $4 million to support multiple zones.
Program proposals are due by the end of September, and the winners will be selected in December.
The zones will fund a new health-focused initiative within a community tasked with finding ways to improve a community dealing with noticeable health disparities compared to the rest of the state.
