The Victoria Lifeline Health Promotion Grants
Victoria Lifeline is celebrating over 30 years of helping people remain safe and independent in their own homes. The Victoria Lifeline Grant Program honours our commitment to the well-being of rural Manitobans by providing financial support for projects that create or enhance opportunities for healthy living among older adults. Grant funds are awarded to organizations serving primarily older adults to purchase equipment and to support activities or programs that promote health and independence. A total of $5,000 is available and funds will be dispersed and awarded based on the evaluation criteria.
The World Health Organization defines health promotion as, "the process of enabling people to increase control over their own health. It covers a wide range of social and environmental interventions that are designed to benefit and protect people’s health." Victoria Lifeline strives to create an inclusive grant program and encourages applications from a diverse group of organizations.
