Organizations in St. Boniface that work to promote the well-being of Canadian seniors can now apply for federal funding for programming.
St. Boniface MP Shelly Glover has launched a call for proposals for projects led and inspired by seniors in the area, it was announced recently.
Organizations can receive up to $25,000 in funding per year and must address one or more of the program’s five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance, officials say.
The application deadline for community-based projects is July 5. For more information, visit http://www.hrsdc.gc.ca/eng/seniors/funding/community/index.shtml
