The community and schools grants program, Healthy Active Australia, is a community and schools grants program to promote physical activity and healthy eating. It will provide grants to not-for-profit, community organisations to conduct healthy eating and/or physical activity projects at the local level across Australia. In February 2006, the Council of Australian Governments announced the Australian Better Health Initiative (ABHI). In July 2006, Australian Health Ministers approved the ABHI implementation plan, including $12 million for the community and schools grants program to promote physical activity and healthy eating. The program will assist at-risk target groups (such as children, adolescents, young women, families in lower socio-economic and rural/remote areas, and Indigenous communities) to increase physical activity and healthy eating, and promote healthy living at the grassroots level in Australian schools and communities.
