The 2023 PlanH Healthy Communities Grants are now open for application. The grants, administered by BC Healthy Communities, are offered across two funding streams: Community Connectedness and Healthy Public Policy.
The Community Connectedness funding stream offers grants of up to $5,000 each for projects that foster relationship-building among community members and create long-lasting social networks. The Healthy Public Policy stream offers grants of up to $15,000 each for projects that seek to develop new or amend existing policies in order to improve the health and well-being of community members. Projects for both streams must use an equity lens to ensure their outcomes benefit those who have historically been excluded from local decision-making processes, or whose needs have not been adequately met by existing policies and programs. Applications close May 1.
Join us for an info session on March 22, 2023, to ask questions and learn more about the application process. Register here.
The grants are funded through the PlanH program, a partnership between the BC Healthy Communities Society and the BC Ministry of Health. Learn more and apply by visiting our Funding page.
