Kevin Waugh, Member of Parliament for Saskatoon-Grasswood, would like to inform his constituents that the call for proposals is open for New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) applications until June 15, 2018. NHSP is seeking proposals for projects led or inspired by seniors. Organizations are invited to apply for funding, under the following three national priorities, for projects that empower seniors to initiate and participate in activities that benefit:
- the vulnerable seniors populations
- focus on diversity of Canada’s seniors
- will promote volunteerism to increase an organization’s capacity
Eligible organizations can receive up to $25,000 in project funding. 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.
The Government recognizes the remarkable contributions that seniors make to our communities. By investing in NHSP community-based projects that help reinforce partnerships with local governments, institutions and organizations, the Government is confirming its commitment to deliver positive change and improve the lives of seniors.
The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) supports projects led or inspired by seniors who make a difference in their communities and in the lives of others.
NHSP was launched in October 2004. Projects funded are helping seniors become active members of their communities by encouraging them to use their skills, wisdom and experience to benefit other people in their communities.
MP Waugh is encouraging organizations to apply for funding. More information on how to apply is available here:
