Seniors Month Grants Open

4 Mar 2022

August is Seniors Month in the Northern Territory. One-off grants of up to $2,000 are available through the Seniors Month Grants Program to assist community organisations and businesses holding an event or activities for older people during August. These grants are designed to offset the cost of an event, not necessarily to fund it entirely.

The objectives of Seniors Month are to:

  • encourage older people to live healthy and active lifestyles all year round;
  • demonstrate that older age can be a time of learning and adventure;
  • celebrate older people and their continuing contribution to family, friends, workplaces and communities, and across generations.

Grant applications will be assessed for their potential to contribute to the achievement of these objectives. Funding is limited and competitive. Not all applications may be successful. Previous grant recipients should not assume that they will automatically receive further funding.

Priority will be given to innovative events that encourage older people to have a healthy lifestyle, become involved in a new activity, connect to the community and create opportunities for older people to continue their involvement in such activities.
