The Alberta Blue Cross Built Together healthy communities grant program

Amount: Recipients receive a one-time $50,000 grant to fund an infrastructure project in their community

Applicable To:

  • Community leagues, school councils, municipalities and other non-profit community groups or organizations with new projects in need of funding are eligible to apply. Organizations must provide services without regard to race, religion, creed, gender or sexual orientation.
  • Priority will be given to projects that reflect our Built Together mandate to promote active living and wellness at a grassroots community level, with an emphasis on children.
  • We’re focused on ensuring grants are equitably distributed on a regional basis over the life of the program. To ensure province-wide representation, the four grants awarded will be split by region (one in a rural community, one in an Indigenous community and two split between Calgary, Edmonton and a secondary city).
