Grants of up to $1,000 to Newfoundland and Labrador nonprofit organizations and community groups for projects and events to promote health and wellness in the western region. Activities must promote at least one of the wellness priority areas: healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco-free living, mental health and addiction, injury prevention, reproductive health, and child and youth development. Funding is also intended to foster partnerships among community groups.
All grant proposals will need to include a health promotion activity. Projects should aim to help residents and communities increase control over and improve their own health.
Projects that engage participants, are based on ideas that have been proven to support improved health and lead to lasting changes will be given high priority for funding.
The Western Regional Wellness Coalition (WRWC) has identified eight priority areas to support wellness. All grant proposals must relate to one or more of the wellness priority areas as listed below.
A specific priority population must be identified – be as specific as possible. Projects that identify a priority population are more likely to receive funding. Priority populations are those groups that would benefit most from the project or initiative (i.e., who are at highest risk if the project does not occur).
More about each of the priority areas can be found at westernwellnesscoalition.com/file.axd?file=%2f2017%2f12%2fWRWC+Community+Grant+Guidelines+and+Application.pdf#page=3.
