The purpose of the Population Health Funding initiative of the Aberdeen Health Foundation is to provide funding opportunities in Pictou County for projects and programs that:

  • Focus on the maintenance, protection, and improvement of the health of the population of Pictou County;
  • Use a social determinants of health approach that considers factors outside of the health care system that significantly affect health;
  • Focus on improvement of the health status of the entire population and reduce health inequities among population groups.

A total of $50,000 will be available for distribution. There is no maximum allowable funding request, but it is anticipated that this amount will be shared among several projects. Priority for funding will be based on community projects that address one or more of the above areas of population health. Programs or projects exhibiting effective partnerships within the community and demonstrating a goal of increasing community capacity will be considered preferentially.
