2017/18 Advancing Queensland: an age-friendly community grants program
The Advancing Queensland: an age-friendly community grants program provides funding for local projects and initiatives to enhance the age-friendliness of communities across Queensland.
Over three years from 2017–18, $1 million per annum will be made available through open funding rounds to seed fund community projects involving partnerships between local government, community and other organisations to co-develop, implement and promote innovative age-friendly projects.
Applications are invited for non-recurrent seed funding of up to $100,000 (GST exclusive) per annum to deliver age-friendly projects from 21 April 2017.
Each year the age-friendly community grants program will focus on two to three age-friendly domains. The 2017-18 round will focus on:
- Outdoor spaces and buildings: seniors live in an environment that includes open spaces, buildings, shaded areas and walkways that are safe and easy to navigate
- Transport: seniors can get out and about, using a range of affordable, user-friendly transport services
- Housing: Seniors’ housing options are affordable, accessible and close to transport and community services.
Applications close 5pm Friday 16 June 2017.
