Communities and organizations can now apply for provincial government funding for wellness initiatives.
The annual Wellness Grant program provides up to $5,000 to support community-led wellness initiatives that address pillars of the province’s strategy, such as living tobacco free, being physically active and reducing sedentary time, healthy eating, consuming alcohol responsibly and mental health promotion.
The deadline to apply is July 6 at 4 p.m. The program has funded 44 projects over the three years it’s been offered.
The chief public health office is offering workshops to help organizations develop their ideas and complete their grant application.
