Grants of up to $200,000 are available for funding projects in your community that support physical and mental wellbeing, by enabling healthy and active lifestyles.
An example for healthy communities could be youth outreach programs to build digital connections to mental health resources, or new community gardens to grow your own healthy food or learn how.
Start thinking about projects to benefit the community where you live. New playground equipment or sports facilities for the kids, paths or ramps to improve access, a community garden to reinvigorate an empty space – these are all things that can revitalise a community and enable healthy and active living.
