Applications will close when funds exhausted.
Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECCPHN) has opened Empowering our Communities drought grants. HNECCPHN is offering grants of up to $50,000 for community-led activities that build resilience during the big dry.
The Empowering our Communities grants will fund:
· Community events or workshops that promote resilience and reduce stigma associated with mental illness and accessing mental health and suicide prevention services;
· Complementary and lifestyle activities known to improve physical and mental health, that can be delivered in a group setting, such as exercise classes, relaxation and yoga classes, mindfulness meditation classes; and
· Community education on topics such as managing stress, anxiety, depression and stigma.
There is no close date and applications will remain open until an initial funding allocation ($500,000) is exhausted. So that funding can be distributed into the community as quickly as possible we are aiming to inform applicants of the outcome of their submission within 10 business days.
Grant applications can be submitted via our Peoplebank Drought Response Hub – https://peoplebank.hneccphn.com.au/farmer-support.
