Expressions of interest are now open for our new £7.5 million public health grant programme.

The Public Health Accelerator Bids (PHAB) programme offers funding across two grant streams. These are:

  • small grants under £15,000
  • major grants over £15,000

Expressions of interest for the major grants opened Tuesday 1 August. The deadline for the first round of expressions of interest is 5pm on Friday 25 August. If their expression of interest is successful, bidders can submit an application form.

A new website has been launched for the programme. The website brings together information on the programme. It includes the full guidance and expression of interest forms. This will be updated with further details as they become available.

The PHAB programme will support the new Essex Wellbeing, Public Health and Communities Business Plan. Grants are available to voluntary organisations, charities, NHS bodies, schools, councils and more.
