Healthy Canberra Grants provides funding for community organisations to deliver community-based activities that create supportive environments to improve the health of Canberrans, with a focus on preventing chronic disease.

A large proportion of the burden of disease in the ACT community is a result of chronic diseases.

The aim of Healthy Canberra Grants is to fund activities that address the lifestyle risk factors contributing to these diseases, using collective community knowledge, skills, resources, and positive partnerships.

Overview of funding

Healthy Canberra Grants funding priorities are informed by the Healthy Canberra: ACT Preventive Health Plan 2020-2025, which sets the foundations for reducing chronic disease and supporting good health across all stages of life.

The plan is a government-led, collaborative approach to prevention informed by the latest available evidence and the needs of the ACT population.
