$1.6 million grants to boost Queensland kids’ health and wellbeing

Queensland Government media release

Applications are now open for grants through Health and Wellbeing Queensland for community-based projects and research focused on nutrition, physical activity, sleep, health equity and wellbeing.

Queenslanders with exciting ideas to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people can apply for a share of funding to bring their projects to life.

Two-thirds of adults and one in four children are living with overweight or obesity in our state, which impacts on individuals and families and costs the Queensland health system an estimated $756 million per year.

Applications for GenQ Health and Wellbeing Queensland Community Grants and GenQ Health and Wellbeing Queensland Impact Grants are open now and will close on 22 March 2023. Further funding rounds under the Health and Wellbeing Grants Program will open later in the year.
