I am pleased to announce on behalf of the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) 2017–2018 Call for Proposals for Community-based Projects. Programs like NHSP not only encourage seniors to stay involved in their community, but also enhance their health and well-being and enable them to stay active and share their knowledge, skills and experience with other seniors.
The NHSP call for proposals, open until June 23, 2017, is seeking proposals for projects led or inspired by seniors. Organizations are invited to apply for funding for projects that promote positive aging and empower seniors to initiate and participate in activities that benefit the community. Eligible organizations can receive up to $25,000 in project funding.
Here are some key links and guidelines for community organizations wishing to apply:
- Funding: New Horizons for Seniors Program – Community-based projects
- Funding: New Horizons for Seniors Program – Pan-Canadian projects
- New Horizons for Seniors Program – Engaging Seniors, Strengthening Communities
When applicants require assistance to complete their application for funding, they are invited to send their request to the general delivery email address, or call the Toll-free number below:
