On May 15, 2019, the Government of Canada launched the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) 2019-20 call for proposals for community-based projects across Canada.
The projects are led or inspired by seniors who are making a difference in the lives of others and their communities.
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. If you would like to apply for funding or learn more about this funding opportunity, visit the website
– simplified online form to make applying easier than ever.
