Social Connectedness Grants Webinar

April 26, 2017 - 10:00am to 11:30am

This is a free informational webinar presented by BC Healthy Communities Society (BCHC). This webinar is to provide additional information on the available Social Connectedness Grant and additional capacity building support through the two streams of the Healthy Communities Capacity Building Fund.

Could your community use more resources and support to foster strong social connections, make a measurable impact on physical activity and increase the health and well-being of your residents? Are you a local government with partnerships with your community and health authority in place? If you are thinking of applying for funding with additional support from one or more of the following opportunities, applicants are highly encouraged to attend this webinar. 

Social Connectedness Grant 

Stream One – Cultivating Connections: Grants of up to $15,000 are available for up to six local governments working with other partners (local governments, health authorities and other community stakeholders) to better understand and take action on improving social connectedness in their community or region.

Stream Two – Resilient Streets Demonstration Communities: Grants of up to $20,000 are available for up to four local governments and their partners to adapt and implement the Resilient Streets program, an approach to building social connections between immediate neighbours on residential streets and in residential buildings.
