Healthy Together Now (HTN) is a community-led grassroots program that helps prevent chronic diseases in Manitoba.  Starting now, community organizations can apply for funding for prevention activities in the areas of physical activity, healthy eating, tobacco prevention and reduction, and mental well-being.

Interlake-Eastern RHA provides funds through Healthy Together Now for community organizations interested in decreasing chronic disease in their communities.  Community meetings will be held across Interlake-Eastern region for any groups interested in applying for funds   The meetings are held to review potential projects and for community to review and recommend projects for funding.  

“The Interlake-Eastern RHA is awarding funding to community groups addressing health and wellness issues in their communities. Applications are currently being accepted and grants will be awarded in October,” says Leana Smith, regional manager community wellness and chronic disease prevention. 

Applicants must complete an online application outlining the proposed project, the budget, partners involved, and target population. The fund will only cover activities directly related to the programming offered. Applications will be reviewed by the Interlake-Eastern Healthy Together Now Steering Committee to ensure grant criteria is met.  Deadlines for each community vary. All programs are encouraged to apply!
