2023 Healthy Communities Fund application deadline extended to May 15

The application deadline for the 2023 PlanH Healthy Communities Fund has been extended to May 15. This extension offers an opportunity for more communities to apply for and access funding to support initiatives that promote community connectedness and healthy public policy.

The grants, which are offered through two funding streams, Community Connectedness and Healthy Public Policy, provide financial support to eligible organizations seeking to make a positive impact in their communities. The Community Connectedness grant offers up to $5,000 to fund projects that foster a sense of belonging and connection among community members. Examples of eligible projects include community events, workshops, and other initiatives that promote social interaction and build strong relationships.

The Healthy Public Policy grant offers up to $15,000 to support initiatives that promote healthy policies that aim to create healthier environments, promote active living and support the overall well-being of community members.

The extension of the application deadline provides more time for eligible organizations to submit their proposals and access this valuable funding. The grant program is designed to support grassroots initiatives that can make a significant impact in promoting healthy communities across British Columbia. With the deadline extended, more organizations have the chance to make a difference in their communities and contribute to building healthier, more connected places to live.

BC Healthy Communities encourages all eligible organizations to take advantage of this extension and submit their proposals by May 15. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to bring their ideas to life and create meaningful change in their communities, contributing to a brighter, healthier future for all.
