Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Chief Minister and Minister for Health, Katy Gallagher, announced on 23 October 2011, funding of $1.2 million through the ACT health promotions grant program to promote good health and prevent chronic disease.
'Community groups, not-for-profit organisations and government agencies are encouraged to apply for the 2012/13 community funding round which supports projects that focus on healthy eating, physical activity, smoking prevention, reduction or cessation, mental health promotion and responsible consumption of alcohol,' the Chief Minister said.
