Apply for an Active Communities Grant (Island and Interior Health Regions)

Applications are now being accepted for active communities grants. 

These grants are for local governments in Island Health and Interior Health Regions and their partners working towards having a measurable impact on physical activity.

Grants of up to $30,000 are available to individual communities. Combined grants of up to $100,000 are available to communities that are working together for greater impact in their region.

Examples of initiatives the grants will support are:
