Seniors Month is held in August each year in the Northern Territory and provides a great opportunity to celebrate the positive aspects of ageing and the contribution that Territory Seniors make to their community.
The objectives of Seniors Month are to:
COTA NT provides a varied program of activities and events for each SENIORS MONTH. Details of our program are published in early July.
The Office of Senior Territorians prepares a calendar of events for Seniors Month each year and administers Seniors Month grants.
Organisations and groups can apply for grants of up to $2,000 to help with running events and activities during Seniors Month in August. Grants are designed to help offset the cost of an event rather than cover the full cost. Funding is limited and not all applications may be successful. Even if you have previously been given a grant, you may not necessarily be given another.
Applications open in mid-February and close mid-March.
