On September 9, 2020, the Government of Canada launched the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) 2020–2021 Call for Proposals for community-based projects across Canada.
The deadline to submit applications is October 20, 2020. If your organization would like to apply for funding or learn more about this funding opportunity, visit our website. To simplify the application process and for us to provide funds more rapidly, organizations can now complete and submit project proposals online.
This year, organizations can apply for funding to support seniors dealing with the pandemic by submitting project proposals that offer specific COVID-19 relief and recovery activities for seniors. More traditional NHSP projects planned for delivery in 2021–2022 can also be submitted.
The New Horizons for Seniors Program supports projects that address one or more of the five program objectives:
Organizations are invited to apply for funding that supports the program’s national priorities:
Community-based projects are eligible to receive up to $25,000 in grant funding. Funds are set aside for small grants of up to $5,000 for organizations that have not received funding from the program in the past five years.
