Call for Proposals: New Horizons for Seniors Program


The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) supports projects for seniors that are led or inspired by seniors who make a difference in the lives of others and their communities. Through the NHSP, the Government of Canada enables seniors to share their knowledge, skills and experiences to the benefit of others.

The call is seeking proposals for projects designed by seniors. Organizations are invited to apply for funding for projects that empower seniors to initiate and participate in activities that benefit the community. The call for proposals is open until June 15, 2018.

Community-based projects are eligible to receive up to $25,000 in grant funding per project for up to one year. This year, organizations that have not received NHSP funding over the last five years have the option of applying for a small grant up to $5,000 through a new pilot project initiative.

For more information about the program, please visit or call 1-800-277-9915.
