Grants available for seniors' programs and activities

Published on 13 July 2022


Campaspe Shire Council’s Seniors Grants Program is now open for applications.

Mayor Chrissy Weller said Council was committed to supporting our older residents’ health, wellbeing and social connection.

“This program is a fantastic opportunity for our not-for-profit community groups, organisations and clubs to fund a seniors focused program or activity.

“Applications of up to $1,000 can be made to fund innovative projects that effectively address social isolation for seniors. This could include, but is not limited to, activities that re-engage seniors ‘post COVID’ and directly support seniors’ programs or support to develop new skills or talents.

“Events hosted by aged care facilities need to be open to the broader senior’s community and not held exclusively for residents. The funds are not available to be used for operational costs (ie. wages or insurance).”

Applications must be submitted using the Seniors Program Grant application form and can be handwritten or entered online here.

Applications close Friday, 29 July. Successful applicants are expected to be announced on Friday, 26 August.

If you require assistance in writing your application, you can contact Council’s Community Development Team on 5481 2200.
