(10) Please refer to the answer for question 8.
(11) The ACT Health Promotion Grants Program (ACTHPGP) funds the Healthy Canberra Grants (HCG), a major funding opportunity for community-based organisations to deliver projects designed to improve health outcomes for Canberrans, with a focus on health prevention.
The Minister for Health announces, via media release, the successful grant recipients for every Healthy Canberra Grants round, however, project promotion is the responsibility of the grant recipient. In addition, ACTHD ACTHPGP staff work with organisations to promote activities and events, and grant recipients are encouraged to advise the ACTHPGP of upcoming project events they are hosting.
ACTHD Media and Strategic Communications will periodically prepare a media release on a project/grant recipient or provide promotion opportunities through ACT Government social media channels as appropriate.
The promotion of programs receiving grants is generally the responsibility of the organisation delivering the program, who would use their channels and networks to reach the target audience.
(12) ACTHPGP funding opportunities are time limited, for up to three years. During the application process, organisations are asked to demonstrate how, in the longer-term, the proposed program will become self-sustainable and non-reliant on grant funding. Successful applicants have no expectation that funding will be renewed beyond the grant period, or that receiving a grant in any way represents a commitment to recurrent funding by ACTHD.
If the evidence/outcomes support continuation of a program beyond the term of a grant, then consideration may be given to seeking further funding through the appropriate budget process.
