An age-friendly community grants program is open to organisation's for local projects and initiatives to enhance the age-friendliness of communities across Queensland.
The Advancing Queensland: an age-friendly community grants program is open to organisations who can display a strong correlation between their project and benefits to the population of older people. Some examples include:
- community groups
- local councils
- non-government organisations
- research insititutes and universities
- for-profit organisations within the private sector
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.
Each year, the age-friendly community grants program will focus on two to three age-friendly domains. The 2017-18 grant round focuses on innovative approaches, responses and solutions to local issues with a specific focus on transport, outdoor spaces and buildings and housing domains.
