New Horizons for Seniors Information and Grant Writing Sessions
March 31, 2017
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is pleased to advise that in anticipation of the 2017 ‘NHSP Call for Proposals’, the Government of Canada will be providing information to help with the application preparation.
The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) helps to ensure seniors will benefit from, and contribute to, the quality of life in their communities through active living and participation in social activities.
Through NHSP your organization may be eligible to receive a grant up to $25,000 per year. Based on the most recent ‘Call for Proposals’, 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.
