New Horizons for Seniors – Deadline Extended!

June 7, 2018

OTTAWA:  Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is advising that the Call for Proposals for New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) has been extended until June 22, 2018. The previous deadline was June 15, 2018.

The NHSP call for proposals is seeking proposals for projects led or inspired by seniors. Eligible organizations can receive up to $25,000 in project funding. Organizations are invited to apply under the following three national level priorities for projects that empower seniors to initiate and participate in activities that:

  • benefit vulnerable seniors populations,
  • focus on diversity of Canada’s seniors; and
  • will promote volunteerism to increase an organization’s capacity.

Starting this year, organizations that have not benefitted from NHSP funding during the last five years can receive up to $5,000 as part of the new small grants pilot project. These organizations can apply for the small grants up to $5,000 per project or for the Community-based funding of up to $25,000 (but not for both). In the context of Small grants Initiative, priority will be given to projects for seniors that meet at least one of the three above priorities.

“Over the years, I have seen many projects under this funding program benefit the seniors in our communities. If you are planning to apply, don’t forget you can contact my Ottawa office if you require a support letter,” concluded MP Eglinski.
