North Bay Nugget - - NEWS -

The Min­istry of Se­niors Af­fairs is invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for the fifth an­nual Se­niors Com­mu­nity Grant Pro­gram. If you rep­re­sent an in­cor­po­rated or­ga­ni­za­tion and have an idea for a larger-scale project, a new stream with grants of up to $100,000 is avail­able for the first time this year. Ap­pli­cants must rep­re­sent se­niors’ groups or of­fer pro­grams or ser­vices that di­rectly ben­e­fit On­tario se­niors. There are three types of grants: • Grants for in­di­vid­u­als who rep­re­sent se­niors’ groups, un­in­cor­po­rated or in­cor­po­rated not-for-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions, lo­cal ser­vices boards, mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties or Indige­nous groups that are in­cor­po­rated ($1,000 to $3,000). • Grants for not-for-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions that have been in­cor­po­rated for at least one year, such as lo­cal ser­vices boards, mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties or Indige­nous groups ($3,000 to $12,000). • Grants for or­ga­ni­za­tions that have been in­cor­po­rated for more than two years. This can also in­clude or­ga­ni­za­tions that re­ceive fund­ing from the province of On­tario such as com­mu­nity health cen­tres, fam­ily health teams, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties (up to $100,000). The dead­line is 5 p.m. Nov. 30. The ap­pli­ca­tion form and guide­lines can be found in English and French at www.on­tario.ca/se­niors. More in­for­ma­tion is also avail­able through Nipiss­ing MPP Vic Fedeli’s con­stituency of­fice at (705) 474-8340.
