Published on

Do you know a local organisation that would like to celebrate the NSW Seniors Festival’s 60th year by holding an event?

Applications to the 2018 NSW Seniors Festival Grants Program are now open

For the first time, NSW Seniors Festival grants ranging from $5,001 to $10,000 for local government organisations to host large-scale community events are available.

Local organisations and community groups can also apply for up to $1,000 to deliver local events or activities, and larger community organisations can apply for grants ranging from $1,001 to $5,000 for local community events.

The Grants Program provides $200,000 in seed funding to organisations and councils to run local festival events and activities that provide opportunities for people over 60 to remain active, healthy, engaged and contributing to their local communities.

Applications close at 11.59pm on Friday 8 September 2017.

In 2018 we will celebrate the Festival from Wednesday 4 April to Sunday 15 April.
