New Horizons for Seniors Program 2019-20 call for proposals for community-based projects
The NHSP’s community-based stream supports activities that engage seniors and address one or more of the Program’s five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance. Organizations are invited to apply for funding under the NHSP’s three national priorities:
• preventing elder abuse and fraud, including measures to reduce crimes and harms against seniors;
• supporting healthy aging in community and addressing dementia, including community supports and intergenerational housing; and
• counteracting ageism in the workplace to promote labour market retention of seniors.
Community-based projects are eligible to receive up to $25,000 in grant funding, and up to $5,000 in small grants funding is available to organizations that have not received funding in the past five years.
The deadline to submit applications is June 21, 2019.
