Applications open for Wellness Grant Program

Live Well PEI is accepting applications for funding for new projects that can reduce barriers, increase supports, and enhance resources to make healthy living an easier choice for all Island residents. Organizations, Indigenous groups, schools and communities can apply to the Live Well PEI Wellness Grant Program to support health promotion projects and initiatives. There are two levels of grant funding available: $2500 and $5000. By providing financial assistance and guidance, Live Well hopes to foster collaboration and create environments where healthy choices are easier for everyone and to empower communities to take action and make a positive impact on overall wellness. The focus of the 2024-2025 grant is on the key pillars of chronic disease prevention and the social, economic, and structural conditions that impact health, including healthy eating, physical activity, living tobacco-free, reducing alcohol consumption and other determinants of health. Organizations interested in applying are encouraged to attend one of two virtual information workshops about the grant program, taking place on July 18 from 10–11 am and August 1 from 12–1 pm. Registration is required by email at livewellpei@gov.pe.ca for the virtual information sessions. The deadline for applications for the Live Well PEI Wellness Grant Program is 4 pm on August 12.
