BC Healthy Communities (BCHC) is excited to announce our new Age-friendly Communities Grant Program is now accepting applications. All local and Indigenous B.C. governments working to build age-friendly communities through equitable policies, programs, and services have access to age-friendly communities funding and support to help make it happen. BCHC is the new administrator for the Age-friendly Communities Grant Program in partnership with the Ministry of Health. The program is open for applications across two funding streams: Planning (Stream 1) up to $25,000, and Projects (Stream 2) up to $15,000. Both grant streams include in-kind, customized capacity-building supports provided by BCHC staff. Applications are due by July 5, 2022.
During our information session, we explained the program in greater detail, answered questions and offered guidance on submitting an application.
