Nova Scotia Department of Seniors Age-friendly Communities Grant
Last month the NS Department of Seniors announced an “Age-friendly communities grant”. There are two funding envelopes, one of which targets “Community Projects”. This envelope covers “programs, services, resources or events that support active, healthy living; help older adults stay connected to community life; maximize the economic and social contributions of older adults; and increase social interaction and community involvement among older adults.”
Non-profit organizations, associations and charities, universities, and municipalities are eligible to apply. Applications received by September 30 will be reviewed and approved in October but if funds are still available there is another deadline on February 1, 2019.
