Description

Culture in Nova Scotia is more than just a “way of life”, it’s also a tool for change. Recognizing the power of culture innovation to address social issues and opportunities, the Culture Innovation Fund’s Healthy Communities Stream is for community leaders and innovators who are at the core of embracing physicians and their families in the towns and communities of our province. Welcoming, and supporting physicians in the community means embracing them not just for what they can mean for your community, but also what your community can mean for them and their family. The Culture Innovation Fund Healthy Communities Stream wants you to think strategically about how to weave new physicians and their families into the fabric of your community. Consider the assets, the barriers, and the ways you can embrace the whole family by showing them how they will be warmly welcomed in our province, our community, and our culture.

Eligibility

Proposals will be considered in two tiers, be certain before submission what tier your project will be evaluated at:

    • Local-level initiatives by community groups and organizations. Requests can be made up to a maximum of $15,000; matching funding or partnerships not necessarily required at this level. In kind, support can be used only when there is a demonstrated value of the service that relates directly to the expenses of the project.
  • Tier 2:
    • Larger partnerships and collaboration opportunities, involving multiple partners, must include group(s) listed in tier 1. Applicants must provide a minimum of 25% of total eligible costs.
