For those of you working with seniors in your community, this post is for you!

The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) is accepting applications to the Community-based projects funding stream that will enable seniors to share their knowledge, skills and experiences with others and help communities increase their capacity to address local issues.  Eligible organizations will receive up to $25,000.  Deadline: July 4th, 2014.

Projects must address one or more of the program’s five objectives:

  • expanding awareness of elder abuse, including financial abuse;
  • supporting the social participation and inclusion of seniors; and
