1. Overview

Organizations that want to help seniors make a difference in the lives of others and in their communities are eligible to receive federal grants and contributions funding. Projects must be led or inspired by seniors and address one or more of the following five program objectives:

  • promoting volunteerism among seniors and other generations;
  • engaging seniors in the community through the mentoring of others;
  • expanding awareness of elder abuse, including financial abuse;
  • supporting the social participation and inclusion of seniors; and
  • providing capital assistance for new and existing community projects and/or programs for seniors.

Community-based projects are eligible to receive up to $25,000 per year, per organization, in grant funding or a small grant of a maximum of $5,000.

Organizations can apply for funding for community-based and pan-Canadian projects in the same year when calls for proposals are open.

The list of approved community-based projects is available on the main New Horizons for Seniors Program page.
