Public Health Accelerator Bids

9 August 2023

The Public Health Accelerator Bids (PHAB) programme will fund new projects that help people in Essex to live a healthy life.

The £7.5 million grant programme will run for three years.

PHAB will make a difference to the lives of many vulnerable residents across Essex. The programme focuses on closing the health inequalities experienced in the county.

The programme consists of two grants:

  • small grants of between £500 and £15,000. Applications open on Monday 4 September 2023
  • major grants from £15,000 with no upper limit. Expressions of interest applications open on Tuesday 1 August 2023

Essex County Council reserve the right to cap the upper limit of funding dependent on availability to provide proportionate universalism at any time.
