As part of BCHC’s commitment to support leadership for healthier communities, we’re pleased to partner with the Government of British Columbia to launch phase two of the Healthy Communities Capacity Building Fund on November 26, 2013. This phase provides $375,000 for eligible local governments to develop local policies and actions to help residents lead healthier lives.
The Healthy Communities Capacity Fund was first announced in March 2013, with initial funding of $200,000. Due to the popularity of the program and quality of applications, that amount was increased to $275,000. The total funding for both phases one and two of the Healthy Community Capacity Building Fund is $650,000. This funding supports learning and leadership through our PlanH program.
Application forms and criteria for phase two will be available on our new PlanH website on November 26, 2013.
