‘The NSW Government has allocated $200,000 seed funding for community groups, volunteer organisations and local councils to host events during the 2017 NSW Seniors Festival.
The NSW Seniors Festival, which will be held from Friday 3 March to Sunday 12 March 2017, is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere with over 500,000 seniors participating in events across NSW last year.
Seniors Festival grants support local councils, volunteer groups and community organisations with the costs of developing and hosting events and activities in their local communities.
The grants are a great way for local organisations to get involved and show their appreciation for seniors and encourage them to actively participate in their local community.
There are two funding categories available in 2017:
Grants of up to $1,000 to deliver local events or activities in their communities,
Grants from $1,001 to $5,000 for larger events which focus on this year’s theme.
