Home 5 News 5 Applications open for Population Health Funding

The Aberdeen Health Foundation is now accepting applications for Population Health Funding. Applications must be received by the Aberdeen Health Foundation on or before October 22, 2021.
Good health is our greatest resource. The goal of this funding is to support programs that improve the health of the whole community while addressing the barriers that some populations experience to achieving their full health potential. In this way we can help create a meaningful and lasting impact on the well-being of everyone in Pictou County.
A total of $40,000 is available. There is no maximum allowable funding request, but it is anticipated that this amount will be shared among several programs.
For further information contact: Deelle Hines at (902) 752-7600 x. 4600. Applications can be submitted to Deelle via email at deelle.hines@nshealth.ca. If you have an idea for a program but are unsure of its eligibility, we encourage you to contact us at any time.

The YMCA of Pictou County hosted an indoor and outdoor community-based pop-up activities that promoted active living. Games, hikes, play spaces, and fitness classes for children, youth, and families were all a part of the ‘Y on the Move’ program that pop-uped in parks, public areas, beaches, community centres, and at community events around the county.
