Wellness Funds are available to non-profit community groups/organizations who have projects that address CHB community health plan priorities and use a population health-based approach in addressing the social determinants of health including healthy child development, education and literacy, poverty and food security, social support networks, coping skills, improved personal health and more.
No project is too small as grants range anywhere from $250-$3,000. Funding is intended for new and innovative projects or enhancements to existing programs that meet an identified community need.
Applications are available on the CHB website at https://www.communityhealthboards.ns.ca/wellness-funds, along with additional information.
Organizations are encouraged to connect with your local CHB Coordinator to discuss your application – they are there to help!
