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.

Please read through the grant guidelines before submitting your application. If you have any questions, please contact Communications Manager Krystal Stokes at (204) 956-6779 or email [email protected]

Please note that the grants are awarded once a year and we will not be accepting applications until February 2021.

If you’d like to know more about successful grant applicants and what the funding has been used for in the past, please read a story about the program from Lifestyles 55.
