The Victorian Health Promotion Foundation is seeking applications for its “Reimagining Health: A VicHealth Partnership Grant” to reimagine health and wellbeing in 2020 and 2021.
VicHealth wants to inspire new or support existing ideas for a project as well as help amplify a project or idea that is already in place in order to reach more Victorians that reimagine health and wellbeing in 2020 and 2021.
All applications should focus on at least one of the following themes:
Increasing access to healthy and affordable food
Finding ways to get people more physically active
Building meaningful social connection for those experiencing isolation or loneliness
They are accepting applications that support better health and wellbeing for:
Victorian children and young people (aged 0–25); and/or
Victorian population groups fighting an uphill battle: those experiencing disadvantage or barriers to enjoying a healthy life.
Grants of up to $3,000, up to $10,000 or up to $50,000 for local and community-led ideas and solutions that support the health and wellbeing of Victorians.
Funding is available for:
Essential goods or services directly relating to your idea, which may include:
Equipment, materials or other items (including sporting equipment and uniforms)
Participant or volunteer support expenses, including costs to reduce barriers to participation
Short-term project staffing or sub-contracting
Organisational capacity-building that will contribute to sustained benefit to the community.
Funding is not available for:
Equipment, materials, staffing costs or overheads not directly related to implementation of the idea
Health service delivery, early intervention, treatment, rehabilitation or prevention of specific diseases
Reimbursement for expenses already incurred, or funded by another source
Infrastructure, capital works or purchase of land
One-off events, fundraising or activities with no sustained benefit to participants or community
