CMHA Kelowna is currently accepting applications for wellness grants!
What are Wellness Grants?
Exercise and socialization are great ways to benefit mental health and well-being. The Wellness Grants program provides an opportunity for people with a mental illness and financial need to access annual fitness memberships at 3 facilities for no cost. The facilities are: (1) the YMCA in downtown Kelowna, (2) the Rutland Family YMCA and (3) the H2O Center. Through the Wellness Grants program, CMHA Kelowna works with the YMCA to cover 100% of the membership fee.
Individuals can apply for either a single grant or for a family grant. Eligible applicants can apply for a maximum total of three (3) annual memberships. We are re-setting the clock and as of April 1, 2018 all applicants will be considered 1st time applicants regardless of whether they have received a grant in the past. i.e. individuals who currently hold a membership at the H20 that was paid for by Wellness Grants and want to renew it will still be considered first-time applicants.
