Fitness

HLTTV offers a Fitness Grant to its post transplant members that qualify to assist in expenditure for fitness activities. HLTTV will reimburse 50% of receipted costs up to a $150 maximum. As funds are limited, HLTTV may not be able to assist all members who apply each year.

The idea is to help post transplant members in maintaining fitness and wellbeing by partially reimbursing for fitness and/or wellbeing expenditure up to $150 per member in any year. This fulfils two of the HLTTV’s objectives of 1) “provide peer support and encouragement for all pre and post heart and lung transplant patients their families and/or their carers”; and 2) of “provide relevant information and encourage healthy lifestyle choices to ensure the maintenance of optimal physical health”.

Applications, with receipts, should be submitted using this form and sent to:
