Healthy Living Grants

There are a number of healthy living grants available to support your school community.

1. Healthy Schools BC Regional Grants

Healthy Schools BC Regional Grants are meant to support school districts and groups of First Nations and/or independent schools, in identifying, addressing and assessing priorities in the area of mental well-being through strengthening partnerships within the health and education sectors, and with community partners.

Based on a shared vision from DASH, Healthy Schools BC, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education, the grants support education and health-sector professionals to collaborate and build relationships, create a plan for identifying and addressing priorities and taking collaborative action regarding mental well-being to create healthy schools.

Applications for the Healthy Schools Network (HSN) School Grants will be accepted from October 9th-November 10th, 2017, with the grants focusing on a new overarching theme of mental well-being. The focus this year will be on Well-Being in a Real-World Context

We know BC schools understand the central role mental well-being plays both in fostering optimal environments for learning, and in engaging students as they develop their skills and explore their passions. Mental well-being is a key foundation for student health, well-being and success.
HSN school level grants will encourage grantees to connect their work to two overarching questions:
1. How is it feasible to promote mental well-being through all environments that promote student learning, growth, and success?
2. How does mental well-being impact the 'whole child'?
Healthy Schools Network Grants will be accepted from October 9-November 10, 2017 and will be accepted through If you have any questions, please contact us at
