Grant applications for 2018 are now open, closing Monday, 27 August.
The Seniors Program Grants are an initiative of the Campaspe Shire Council that have been developed to ensure that council funds have the greatest possible benefit to all seniors groups in our communities.
The Seniors Program Grants are open to incorporated organisations in the Campaspe Shire with a focus on supporting increased health, wellbeing and social connectedness among the aged community.
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).
Groups are eligible to apply for up to $1,000.
Further information is available on the Fact Sheet - below.
Applications are to be made using the Seniors Program Grant Application Form (available below) and can be submitted handwritten or entered electronically (electronic preferred where possible).
The Seniors Grants seek to fund projects and programs that support increased health, wellbeing and social connectedness for the aged community.
Grants are made available in September to coincide with the annual Victorian Seniors Festival in October.
