Grants and Funding

Health and Wellbeing Queensland has created a grants program to support initiatives that help to drive generational change and improve the health and wellbeing of Queenslanders.

The objectives of the Grants Program are to:

    • grow and bolster state and national partnerships to advance health and wellbeing initiatives
    • generate evidence-based and innovative ideas to improve the health and wellbeing of infants, children and young people, with a particular focus on addressing health inequities and obesity prevention and population-level impact
    • leverage existing knowledge that has high potential to influence health and wellbeing promotion and/or practice, and lead to improved, sustainable and equitable health and wellbeing outcomes, and
    • support initiatives and projects to address local needs and support health and wellbeing within the community.
