|WELLNESS FUNDS 2015-16 – CALL FOR APPLICATIONS WERE HELD|
|Nova Scotia’s Community Health Boards (CHBs) were seeking applications for wellness funds.
A CHB is a committed group of volunteers legislated by the Health Authorities Act. They are mandated to carry out key functions to ensure the health system is responsive to community health needs.
Through the wellness funds, the 37 CHBs support non-profit groups in developing healthy communities. The funding for this initiative comes from the Department of Health and Wellness.
The deadline to apply for Wellness Funds was Nov. 1, 2015. For full details please visit, www.nshealth.ca/community-wellness-funds or contact your local CHB. Applications must be submitted to each CHB to which you are applying. You may apply to more than one CHB if your project occurs in more than one CHB area. Not all projects submitted may be able to be funded, as CHBs frequently receive more applications for funding than funds available, but all those eligible are encourage to apply.
Wellness Grant Applications were forwarded to the Attention of Admin Assistant Benita Manzine. She is the collection point for all of the grant applications this year. Here is the contact info:
