“Health promotion is
the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their
health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behaviour towards a wide range of
social and environmental interventions.” – World Health Organization
Since 1997, VCH has provided more than $4 million dollars each year in grants to support community partners in their work to help empower vulnerable communities to increase control over, and improve, their health through addressing upstream social and/or environmental barriers.
Competition for all VCH Health Promotion Grant programs (ACTION Mini-GRANTS for trauma prevention, Active Communities Grants, One-time-Only (OTO) Health Promotion Project Grants, Overdose Prevention Grants (only in 2017), and Youth-Run/Youth-Focussed Tobacco Reduction Initiatives Funding) is now closed, and we are no longer accepting applications. No new funding/general call for applications is anticipated for the Sharon Martin Community Health Promotion Program Grants (SMART) Program.
Please check back in early spring for 2018 grant program application deadlines and new grant opportunities.
