Established by Eastern Health’s Board of Trustees, and valued at $50,000 annually, the Healthy Communities Partnership Fund enables local community groups and organizations to strengthen partnerships and foster the development of healthy communities by working collaboratively with Eastern Health.
Proposed projects should contribute to building a healthier community by:
- strengthening social support networks;
- developing community connections and partnerships;
- addressing a health and wellness need in the community;
- creating supportive environments; and/or
- strengthening community action.
The fund is structured around an idea-to-application process. With this concept, the potential applicant connects with a Healthy Communities Consultant to discuss their project ideas and to obtain the application form.
Contact information and further details about the Healthy Communities Partnership Fund can be found in the guidelines document (PDF).
Funding of up to $10,000 per grant is available for non-profit community-based groups and organizations.
Applicants must have at least one partner and serve the population within the geographic boundary of Eastern Health (from the St. John’s region west to Port Blandford, including all communities on the Avalon, Burin and Bonavista Peninsulas).
