The Heart Foundation has up to ten $10,000 grants for new, innovative programs that get more people
moving in schools, universities or local community groups.

The HF is encouraging community groups, councils, schools (primary and secondary), tertiary institutions
(universities, TAFEs, colleges), and other organisations to come up with an innovative idea to encourage
physical activity in a chosen group or community.

Community members/individuals will need to either hold a current Australian Business Number (ABN) or
partner with an eligible entity (one that holds a current ABN) for the project to be considered eligible, and to
enable a funding agreement to be executed.

The Heart Foundation strongly encourages innovative projects that specifically support people not
meeting Australia’s Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines, people at risk of chronic
disease, and people living in communities with high levels of physical inactivity, including rural and remote
regions. This includes people identifying as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and people with culturally
and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Grant ideas (based on previous years’ winners) include:
• Dance classes
• Exercising using virtual reality technology
• Surfing lessons for children with autism
• Engaging special interest groups (eg. Scouts and girl guides)
• Guided bicycle tours for young people
• Silent disco in aged care
• Free play resources (toys etc) in a portable trailer
• Walking/cycling ‘school buses’
