Health grants up to $20K for rural not-for-profit and care organisations

ONE-OFF grants of up to $20,000 are open to not-for-profit and care organisations in rural areas to improve services for people with health needs.

WA Primary Health Alliance is hoping interest in the new Innovation and Collaboration grants program will help make a difference.

Country WA Primary Health Network general manager Linda Richardson said the aim of the grant program was to achieve systemic changes needed to better co-ordinate health support services.

“Projects should demonstrate how, by working together, we can improve the health and wellbeing of people living in country regions and specifically small communities,” Ms Richardson said.

Projects funded under the program are required to meet a set of criteria and applications with a focus on mental health, Aboriginal health and aged care and digital health are encouraged from across the community.
