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.
Five $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.
Alberta Blue Cross will be accepting applications for the 2018 Healthy Communities Grant Program on June 1, 2018.
