Grants available for healthy living projects

Northern Health has grants up to $5,000 for local projects

Northern Health is seeking applications for the March 31 deadline for the IMAGINE Community Grants.

These grants provide up to $5,000 to community groups, schools and other organizations who have projects that will improve the health of those living, working, learning and playing in northern British Columbia.

The grants have been given out since 2009, and Quesnel’s Barlow Creek Elementary PAC, Carson Elementary, and Kids Kare Centre each received grants last year, as well as the District of Wells for its intergenerational gym nights.

To access the application guide and form, go to www.northernhealth.ca or call 250 565 2131.
