Healthy Communities Grant Program is designed to fund infrastructure projects that foster active living. The program was created to help Albertans build spaces such as skate park, playground, outdoor gym or arena, for active living in their community.
- Community leagues, school councils, municipalities or other non-profit community groups or organizations with new projects in need of funding are eligible to apply.
- Organizations must provide services without regard to race, religion, creed, gender or sexual orientation.
- Priority will be given to projects that reflect our Healthy Communities mandate of promoting active living and wellness at a grassroots community level, with an emphasis on children.
Eligible projects include but are not limited to
- outdoor adult gyms,
- cycling paths,
- construction or replacement of playgrounds,
- skate parks, and
- outdoor rinks.
Note: Programs must be publicly accessible and free of membership charge.
Deadline DateDue to COVID-19 pandemic, the program is suspended for 2020. The program will be back and open to applications in June 2021.
