SENIORS–Grants Protect Seniors’ Health and Safety
A provincial grant program that aims to improve seniors’ health and safety is now accepting applications.
The Senior Safety Grant, funded by the departments of Seniors and Justice, provides up to $20,000 to non-profit, community-based safety programs that provide information, support, and guidance to seniors.
Eligible programs promote education and awareness of senior abuse, including financial, emotional and physical, crime prevention, safety, and health. Programs must show financial or in-kind community support, and emphasize better communication between seniors and the police.
New and existing seniors’ safety program groups are encouraged to apply. Application forms are available at www.novascotia.ca/seniors/senior_Safety_Grant.asp or by calling, toll-free, 1-800-670-0065 or, in metro, 902-424-0065.
Applications will be accepted until Oct. 6.
