Applications open for Queensland community grants

THE Queensland Government's 2019-20 'Advancing Queensland: an age-friendly community grants program' is now open.

This program provides funding for local projects and initiatives to enhance the age-friendliness of communities across the state.

Seed funding is available for initiatives involving partnerships between local government, community and other organisations to co-develop, implement and promote innovative age-friendly projects.

Successful applications will receive one-off grant funding between $25,000 and $100,000.

The current grant round focuses on innovative approaches, responses and solutions to local issues with a specific focus on social participation and communication and information.

Eligible organisations must be based in Queensland and include community groups, local councils, research institutions and universities, non-government organisations and for-profit organisations within the private sector.

Applications through SmartyGrants close at 5pm on June 10, 2019.

This is the third round of the Queensland Government commitment of $1 million per year for three years to fund the development of innovative age-friendly projects. 

Successful applications in the 2018-19 round included civic participation and employment, community support and health services, and respect and social inclusion.
