The Positive Ageing Grants 2015/16 round is now open and online applications are due by 5.00 pm on Friday 30 October 2015.

The program provides one-off grants of between $10,000 and $30,000 for projects which promote positive ageing and contribute to the social and economic participation of older South Australians.

To be considered for funding, projects must align to at least one of following: health, wellbeing and security; social and economic productivity; all-ages-friendly communities. This year, there will be a particular emphasis on providing funding for projects that support active ageing and personal wellbeing amongst older people.

Organisations must also be community based, not-for-profit and incorporated (or auspiced) to be eligible to apply.
