The ACT Health Promotion Grants Program (ACTHPGP) offers grants to community-based organisations to improve the health of Canberrans and minimise the risk of them developing chronic diseases.
This funding supports the objectives of the Healthy Canberra: ACT Preventive Health Plan 2020 – 2025.
The Plan prioritises five key areas:
- supporting children and families
- enabling active living
- increasing healthy eating
- reducing risky behaviours, including smoking, risky alcohol consumption and the transmission of sexually transmissible infections and bloodborne viruses, and
- promoting healthy ageing.
