The health and wellbeing of Tasmanians will be boosted with 37 organisations receiving funding under the latest round of the Healthy Tasmania Step Forward Grants program for 2023-24.
Step Forward grants provide up to $5,000 for a wide range of activities and equipment that support health and wellbeing in the community, such as training, posters, brochures or other equipment.
This latest round provides $162,000 in funding for a range of initiatives across the State that promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of individuals, while increasing community spirit and participation.
Successful initiatives funded under this round include purchasing equipment for community kitchens and gymnastics clubs, to supporting mental health training and community events.
