Ontario is providing more opportunities for seniors to be active, healthy and engaged in their communities with an expansion of its successful Seniors Community Grant program.
The Province is once again accepting applications for the program. This year, organizations can apply for up to $100,000 for projects that are larger in scope, leverage partnerships and have the potential to benefit more seniors over time.
Supporting healthy, active seniors across the province is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“By working at the community level, the province is helping to ensure that seniors are staying active and connected. Hundreds of projects completed over the past four years have focused on volunteerism, learning, social inclusion, mental well-being and physical activity, creating a positive impact on seniors in their community.”
— Dipika Damerla, Minister of Seniors Affairs
“The Seniors Community Grant program has a track record of success. I am pleased this expansion will engage even more seniors within Scarborough-Guildwood.
— Mitzie Hunter, MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood
