ABOUT THE INNOVATION FUND

Communities are the experts when it comes to knowing what they need to improve their health and wellbeing. The Innovation Fund supports preventive health projects that help people maintain good health by living a healthy lifestyle. The key focus areas of the Innovation Fund are either healthy eating, active living, or both. 

The Innovation Fund started in 2018 with 39 projects funded in round one. The Mid North Coast Local Health District contributed to the initial start up of the Innovation Fund.

In round two, which was released in 2019, 36 applications were successful. Round two projects are now underway – we will showcase some project case studies and videos in the coming months.
