The Health Promotion Board (HPB) has launched a new grant to help fund ground-up initiatives, which promote healthy lifestyles here.

More than 4,500 of the board's health ambassadors will be able to tap on the grant of up to $500 per year for each approved project, to help bring their ideas to fruition.

These ideas should that help bring home the message of a healthy lifestyle to their family, peers and neighbours.

Some examples of projects that ambassadors could embark on include health talks, healthier cooking demonstrations and health screening recruitment drives.
