Northern Health is looking for community partners with ideas for projects that will improve the health and wellness of those living, working, learning, and playing in Northern BC. Applications are now open for Northern Resilient Communities Grants – apply by November 30, 2021!
COVID-19 has created many challenges for Northern communities and community service organizations: the pandemic has changed how you deliver services, communicate with members, and run programming. The Northern Resilient Communities Grants provide funding to community organizations, service agencies, Indigenous organizations, schools, municipalities, regional districts, and other partners with projects that support community resiliency.
The program aims to support groups and organizations who need help adapting, maintaining, or establishing practices in response to emerging community health and wellness needs. Grants are available for a maximum of $10,000. C
Since August 2020, the Northern Resilient Communities Grants program has received 116 applications and invested $282,103.13 into 69 projects in communities across the North. Past projects have included outdoor spaces for schools and community groups to expand current learning hubs; virtual programming to support skills development and community connectedness; food security services for structurally disadvantaged populations; and sporting equipment for schools and community groups to encourage outdoor activity, just to name a few.
