2021 PlanH Grant Streams - Now accepting applications

funding opportunity image

PlanH is distributing 30 grants across 2 streams:

The Community Connectedness funding stream offers 20 grants of $5,000 each, as well as support from BC Healthy Communities staff, for projects that foster relationship-building among community members and create long-lasting social networks. This stream includes project proposals which support people to be connected even if they are physically distanced, and proposals in which Indigenous and local governments develop strategies and plans to address the mental health implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Healthy Public Policy stream offers 10 grants of $15,000 each, as well as support from BC Healthy Communities staff, for projects that seek to develop new or amend existing policy in order to improve the health and well-being of community members. Eligible projects may include policy analysis, public engagement, research, implementation or evaluation. 

Projects for both streams must use an equity lens to ensure their outcomes benefit those who have historically been excluded from local decision-making processes, faced unfair burdens and negative impacts of previous decision-making, or whose needs have not been adequately met by existing policies and programs. 

Both grants are available to Indigenous and local governments including municipalities, regional districts, First Nations Band and Self-Governing First Nations, First Nations tribal councils, and Métis chartered communities.

The deadline to apply is June 1st.
