At an event today in Grand-Falls Windsor, the Honourable Bernard Davis, Minister of Tourism, Culture, Arts and Recreation, announced nearly $1.8 million has been invested to support the 2020-21 Community Healthy Living Fund. Minister Davis was joined by the Honourable Derek Bennett, Minister of Environment, Climate Change and Municipalities and Dave Stoodley, membership director for Exploits Nordic Ski Club, at the event.

The Community Healthy Living Fund provides support to communities and community-based organizations for projects, programs and initiatives that help increase physical activity and healthy eating. Eligibility based, the fund is categorized under the criteria of either capacity building, programs or supportive environments. To date, $476,515 of the 2020-2021 fund has been allocated, including $26,430 for the Exploits Nordic Ski Club for equipment and other accessories needed to maintain their trail system and to support cross-country skiing in the region.

The deadline to apply for the 2020-2021 Community Healthy Living Fund is December 18, 2020. A detailed listing of the 2020-21 projects funded to date can be found in the backgrounder below.

In 2019-20, the fund provided support to 272 community groups and organizations, supporting 426 projects and initiatives. For a list of projects that received funding last year, visit here.

Quotes
“Helping communities deliver important programs and initiatives aimed at encouraging residents to get more active and live a healthier lifestyle is important to our government. The Community Healthy Living Fund reaches just about every corner of our province, and we are pleased to partner with community-based groups to improve outcomes for our residents. As the deadline of December 18 approaches, I encourage organizations throughout our province to apply.”
Honourable Bernard Davis
Minister of Tourism, Culture, Arts and Recreation

“On behalf of Exploits Nordic Ski Club, in partnership with the town of Grand Falls-Windsor, I would like to thank the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts and Recreation for making funding available through the Community Healthy Living Fund. The funding we have received through this initiative has enabled us to develop and offer programs that are accessible to all members of our community, from children to seniors, to help them be active and maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout the winter months. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are lifelong sports that provide an appropriate level of activity for all individuals.”
