From Office For Seniors Webpage:

The Office for Seniors’ Community Connects fund supports communities to become Age-friendly.

The fund targets projects to promote the inclusion and contribution of older people in community life, and support their community to prepare for an ageing population.

Find out more about Age-friendly communities here.

You can apply for funding to either:

  • start development of an Age-friendly Communities Plan, or
  • implement an Age-friendly Community project.

Grants have a value up to $15,000 (the fund has an annual budget of $100,000). All funded activities funded must be completed within 12 months.

There are up to two grant rounds each financial year.

The current round will open in February and close on 7 April.
