2) the delivery of health care to those who are living with diabetes.

The current round of funding plans to award $1.2 million to projects that best meet the funding criteria. Sustainable community-centred projects promoting partnerships are encouraged.

Since the launch of its Diabetes Funding Strategy in 2001-02, the Foundation has made 25 grants totalling $3 million for projects across Canada.

The maximum grant amount is $150,000 payable over 24 months (maximum $75,000 per 12-month period). We request that letters of intent be submitted in English in light of our limited staff resources.
