As­sis­tance of­fered for se­niors events

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

MEM­BER for Tweed Ge­off Provest is call­ing on lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions to ap­ply for a share of $200,000 to host events en­cour­ag­ing older peo­ple to join or fea­ture in 2019 NSW Se­niors Fes­ti­val events.

“We want our se­niors to thrive in the com­mu­nity, and the fes­ti­val pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for older peo­ple to not only en­joy en­ter­tain­ment, but get in­volved and share their tal­ents with our com­mu­nity,” Mr Provest said.

The 2019 NSW Se­niors Fes­ti­val runs from Fe­bru­ary 13-24 and or­gan­i­sa­tions are en­cour­aged to plan now, with three fund­ing cat­e­gories avail­able:

• Tier 1 grants of up to $1000 for small-scale events or ac­tiv­i­ties tar­geted at com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and schools.

• Tier 2 grants from $1,001 to $5000 for lo­cal events tar­geted at larger com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions.

• Tier 3 grants from $5,001 to $10,000 for broader com­mu­nity events tar­geted at lo­cal coun­cils in part­ner­ship with or­gan­i­sa­tions and groups.
