New $2.5million VicHealth grant round to support the health and wellbeing of Victorians hardest hit by coronavirus .

In the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic, protecting our health and wellbeing is more important than ever.

To respond swiftly, and support Victorians effectively, VicHealth has listened to our stakeholders and reimagined our upcoming grant round to identify and address the needs of people in our community who are facing the greatest challenges with their health and wellbeing.

Our Reimagining Health: A VicHealth Partnership Grant round will provide a total funding pool of $2.5 million to support Victorians hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic. Through the grants, VicHealth will work with local partners to fund local solutions to improve physical and mental health.

VicHealth is offering grants of up to $3K, $10K or $50K for local organisations who can support young people (aged 0-25 years) or Victorians experiencing disadvantage, by creating meaningful social connection, providing opportunities for physical activity or by addressing food insecurity.

We’re looking for ideas that create immediate impact and reimagine health and wellbeing in 2020 and 2021.

We want to hear from a range of local organisations who can support Victorians hardest hit by the health and wellbeing impacts of coronavirus, including sports clubs, art organisations or community groups. We are looking to support new or existing ideas as well as help amplify projects or ideas that are already in place in order to reach more Victorians.

Reimagining Health: A VicHealth Partnership Grant round opens 9.00am Wednesday 16 September. Mark your calendars and get ready to apply early so your application can be assessed and granted early.
