New Horizons for Seniors Program 2019-20 Call for Proposals For Community-Based Projects
May 17, 2019
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to inform constituents that the Department of Seniors has announced the launch of the 2019–20 New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) call for proposals for community-based projects.
The Program’s community-based stream supports activities that engage seniors and address one or more of its five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance.
Organizations are invited to apply for funding under the NHSP’s three national priorities:
- preventing elder abuse and fraud, including measures to reduce crimes and harms against seniors;
- supporting healthy aging in community and addressing dementia, including community supports and intergenerational housing; and
- counteracting ageism in the workplace to promote labour market retention of seniors.
The 2019–20 NHSP community-based call for proposals is open until June 21, 2019.
“Our seniors have worked hard to support their families, communities and grow our economy. I encourage organizations in the Yellowhead to apply,” concluded MP Eglinski.
