Community Wellness Grant Program call for applications

People and communities on Vancouver Island and surrounding coastal communities will benefit from up to $800,000 in Community Wellness Grants being provided by Island Health to improve the health and well-being of Island residents. 

Now in its seventh year, Island Health’s Community Wellness Grant program provides the opportunity for not-for-profit organizations, local government organizations and Indigenous Nations and organizations to apply for one-time funding for community-led wellness projects that reduce barriers and increase supports.

"Health is determined by more than health services. Each year I am inspired by the positive health impacts achieved with the assistance of the Community Wellness Grant Program," said Kathy MacNeil, Island Health's President and CEO. "We know that upstream wellness interventions, like those made possible through this program, are an essential part of keeping people well and healthy.”
