THE HEALTH PROMOTION INNOVATION FUND IS NOW OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS

Supporting innovative activities that enable ACT residents to live a healthy, active life

The Health Promotion Innovation Fund invites applications for grants of up to $15,000 for innovative health promotion projects to support the ACT Government’s goal of achieving a healthier weight profile in the ACT population. It has a particular focus on achieving this outcome in children. This includes improving eating habits and increasing physical activity.
In addition, projects which support smoking prevention, reduction in hazardous alcohol consumption and healthy active ageing will be considered.
The Health Promotion Innovation Fund provides three funding opportunities per year. The next cut-off date for applications is Monday 20 October 2014. Community-based groups, school communities, not-for-profit organisations and ACT Government agencies are welcome to apply.
