Seniors community grant applications accepted
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.
