The Winter Wellness Grants available through the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) are intended to support innovative ways for people to stay safe and well in the New Year – including through online activities.
Staying strong during these challenging times!
The FNHA recognizes the impacts that physical distancing and social isolation may have on the health and well-being of First Nations individuals, families and communities. With this in mind, the FNHA is providing Winter Wellness Grants to support community-led, virtual celebrations in honour of Winter Solstice. These celebrations are intended to promote culture, resilience and community while maintaining physical distancing.
First Nations communities, schools, and health and social organizations that provide wellness services to Indigenous British Columbians will be eligible for up to $1,000 to conduct their own virtual/online celebration to honour Winter Solstice.
The grant process will open Jan. 4, 2021. More information and grant applications will be provided later.
Reminder: To qualify for a grant, you must ensure that your organization or school has your up-to-date wellness grant reports. You may check on your reporting status by emailing Active@fnha.ca.
