Background to the Grants Scheme
The Community Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Grants were administered by the Heart Foundation with funding from the Australian Government through the National Partnership Agreement on Preventive Health (NPAPH). The NPAPH agreement is between the Commonwealth, states and territories. It aims to address the rising prevalence of lifestyle-related chronic disease such as some cancers, heart disease and type 2 diabetes through addressing a range of health behaviours including healthy eating and physical activity.
