2018-19 2nd Round Seniors Grants Program are now open

In the ACT we have a proud tradition of celebrating active ageing and recognising the many positive ways in which older Canberrans are involved throughout our community. Australians are increasingly living longer and maintaining good health later in life is more important than ever. This presents both opportunities and challenges in ensuring people who want to remain active or remain working later on in life are able to do so.

The Inclusion and Participation Division within the Community Services Directorate is pleased to announce the 2018-19 2nd Round Seniors Grants Program (the Program).

The aim of the Program is to provides funding for innovative projects that promote seniors as valued members of the ACT community and enable their active participation in community life. The Program has a particular emphasis on supporting projects which address the areas of elder abuse, enhanced social inclusion and those that address the needs of diverse seniors, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse seniors.
