The Community Foundation of PEI is pleased to announce the application period for Round 2 of the Government of Canada’s Healthy Communications Initiative is now open and will run from May 14, 2021 until June 25, 2021.
The Healthy Communities Initiative is a $31 million investment from the Government of Canada to adapt public spaces to respond to COVID-19. Some communities, including low-income and marginalized communities, feel the pandemic’s impacts more than others. Some lack public spaces they can access safely. This funding aims to help address that.
With funding between $5,000 and $250,000, the Healthy Communities Initiative aims to support local efforts to develop small-scale infrastructure solutions, programming, and services for communities across Canada.
Whether it’s pop-up bike paths, community gardens, art installations or Wi-Fi hot spots or other programs and services, Canadians want to be able to work, play and learn in safe, vibrant and inclusive communities.
Local governments, charities, Indigenous communities and non-profits are all welcome to apply for funding. Applicants are encouraged to engage the community when designing their projects.
Applications must be submitted online. Visit https://communityfoundations.ca/initiatives/chci/ to learn more.
