The Seniors Community Grant Program, the first grant program in Ontario dedicated solely to seniors, was introduced to give seniors more opportunities to participate in their communities by providing funding to not-for-profit community groups for projects that encourage greater social inclusion, volunteerism and community engagement for seniors.
The program is focused on encouraging initiatives and projects in the non-profit sector that encourage greater social inclusion, volunteerism, education and community engagement for seniors across the province. Grants range from $500-$8,000.
The application period for 2016 has now closed.
Over the past two years, the Seniors Community Grant Program has already supported 544 projects and helped approximately 116,000 seniors across the province. Find bellow a full list of previous grant recipients.
