Congratulations to our newest funding recipients
In March 2021, VicHealth invited organisations including arts or cultural organisations, sports and recreation clubs, and community groups to apply. Funding projects support children and young people (aged 0-25 years) and Victorians hardest hit by the impacts of coronavirus and the Victorian bushfires. Including those already facing greater barriers to reaching their full health potential because of circumstances such as their income, cultural background, gender, age or where they live.
Over the two Reimagining Health: A VicHealth Partnership Grant rounds, over 700 local and grassroots community organisations to create and deliver locally-led solutions. For a full list of our latest grant recipients click here.
