The SA Healthy Towns Challenge is a grants program for regional and rural towns to develop preventive health programs within their community, which will have measurable benefits (over 12 months) to the community’s health and wellbeing. Successful projects aim to increase access or opportunity for the community to make healthier choices or participate in activities with a prevention focus.
Grants of up to $50,000 each will be provided to a minimum of five towns (or groups of towns) each year for four years (until 2021), across the six regional SA Local Health Networks.
All applications must be made in partnership with an External Partner. The External Partner must be a not-for-profit organisation with expertise in the health and wellbeing sector, including non-government organisations, University departments, and smaller community groups with specific expertise.
