Phase 2 funding for programs to promote better Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health opened on 13 June 2011 as part of the Get active eat good tucker live longer national program. Closing date is 30 September 2011.
Up to $17 million is being provided by the Australian Government from 2011-2013 for communities to develop their own Local community campaign project to promote and reinforce messages about healthy lifestyle choices within their community. Local community campaigns are grass roots campaigns delivering healthy lifestyle messages to tackle chronic disease. The Live healthily in Dharawal program, which received funding under phase 1 of the program, was recently promoted at a Community Expo Day at Tharawal Aboriginal Medical Service in Sydney. This program is aimed at reducing the prevalence of tobacco smoking and improving levels of healthy nutrition and physical activity.
