Healthway will provide up to $120,000 per annum for three years, and $150,000 per annum for the year/s the intervention will be developed.

Exploratory Research Grants

The overall purpose of these grants is to support exploratory or formative studies to address gaps in research relevant to Healthway’s high priority areas, with demonstrated potential to influence health promotion in the WA community.
