New Horizons for Seniors Program – Call for Proposals Now Open!

The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) 2018-2019 call for proposals for Community-based Projects are now open. Programs like NHSP not only encourage seniors to stay involved in their community, but also increase their social participation and inclusion. This is key to enhancing their well-being and quality of life, as well as to enable them to stay active and share their knowledge, skills and experience with other community members.

The NHSP call for proposals, open until June 15, 2018, 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; and
  • 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.
