The FNHA is offering Winter Wellness grants to encourage the development of innovative, culturally grounded health promotion events and campaigns. Grants between $1000-$5000 will be offered depending on the number of communities involved and the creativity/complexity of the Challenge.


Communities, organizations and agencies engaged in direct health service delivery to BC First Nations and/or Aboriginal people may apply. Eligible Challenges will be based on the four wellness streams of Being Active, Healthy Eating, Nurturing Spirit, and Respecting Tobacco. The challenge can run over an extended period of time or be a single event.


The deadline for applications is October 27 at 4pm.


Applications will be weighed against the following criteria:

• BC First Nations community based applications (single or multiple)

• Applications where collaboration or partnership with other communities is possible and demonstrated at the regional, or sub- regional level

• Fairness and equity within and across the regions

• Host organizations that can involve higher numbers of participants

• Past Day of Wellness grant recipients have submitted final reports for last year’s grant.

• Challenges that focus on the FNHA Wellness Streams
