BC Healthy Communities (BCHC) Seed Grant Program

The grants program is one expression of BCHC's commitment to building on the strengths and knowledge that already exist in communities, while supporting new opportunities to put the healthy communities approach into action.

The grants program has two primary goals:

1. To build community knowledge of the healthy communities approach; and
2. To enhance community capacity to implement a healthy communities approach.

Groups may apply for a maximum $2,500.00 to support activities and processes that improve community health and well-being, and promote optimum human development.

Program background and guidelines, as well as the application form, are available on the BC Healthy Communities website under What's New (www.bchealthycommunities.ca). Groups that are considering applying for a grant are urged to first contact the BCHC Regional Facilitator for their area to discuss their ideas.  Facilitators may be reached by calling toll free 1-888-356-0892.
