Communities and organizations can now apply for provincial government funding for wellness initiatives that promote healthy living. This year the Wellness Grant program includes two different funding streams to help make it more accessible: the Community Catalyst Grant and the Health Promotion Grant. All projects funded through the program need to address at least one of the pillars of the province’s Wellness Strategy, such as:
- living tobacco free;
- being physically active and reducing sedentary time;
- healthy eating;
- consuming alcohol responsibly; and
- mental health promotion.
