In the interest of promoting wellness and active living, Alberta Blue Cross has launched the Healthy Communities grant program. Through this program, Alberta Blue Cross is investing $1 million, over a five-year period, to support and promote active living in communities across Alberta.
Four $50,000 grants are being awarded each year to support community amenities and facilities that promote active living.
Project examples that support active living could include
- construction or replacement of children’s playgrounds,
- outdoor adult gyms,
- cycling paths, and
- recreational facility improvements.
Applications are being accepted for this year’s grants starting on June 1, 2014. Organizations interested in applying for grant funding can apply by completing the application form and submitting it to Alberta Blue Cross. • Health Communities Grant Program
