Healthy Communities Capacity Building Grants: Round Three

This is a call for expressions of interest from local governments in BC who are leading the way in creating the conditions that enable healthy people and healthy places – in partnership with regional health authorities and other key community stakeholders. There are two streams of support available:

STREAM ONE
Seeding Healthy Small, Rural and Remote Communities
This stream is open to up to 30 small, rural, and remote communities and includes grants of up to $5,000, along with other capacity building support such as tailored resources, limited coaching and facilitation.

BC Stats and Statistics Canada (2011) define small population centres as those with populations between 1,000 – 29,999 or a population density of at least 400 people/sqkm. Rural / remote communities are classified as those with population under 1,000 OR under 400 people per square kilometer (population density).

STREAM TWO
Growing Impact: BC’s Next Level of Healthy Communities Leadership
This stream is open to up to five communities of any size, and provides an integrated suite of support including learning events, coaching, a community of practice, and grants of up to $15,000.
Priorities & Focus Areas (Both Streams)

Partnership development and collaboration between local governments, health authorities, and other community stakeholders is a priority, as is working upstream for greater impact in one or more of the following focus areas: healthy eating and food security, tobacco reduction, physical activity, healthy early childhood development, positive mental health and well-being, culture of moderation for alcohol use, injury prevention, and planning for a healthy built environment.
