Jumpstart! is the second major investment in VicHealth’s Future Healthy initiative. Together, JumpStart! will create hundreds more community-led initiatives for Victoria’s children and young people (aged 0-25, including families). Round 2 is all about building healthier communities through sport, active play art and food.

Funding Categories
