Alberta Blue Cross Healthy Communities Grant

Alberta Blue Cross Healthy Communities Grant

We launched the Healthy Communities Grant Program to support and promote active living in communities across Alberta. Five $50,000 grants are 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.

Who can apply?

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 a particular emphasis on children.

Programs must be publicly accessible and free of membership charge.

Applications open annually on June 1 with an application deadline of August 31.
