Participation for CALD Seniors grants program
2016 Round Now open for applications
Are you a seniors group or an organisation that could use funding to create or expand opportunities for isolated culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) seniors to participate in the community?
The Participation for CALD Seniors grants program funds projects that help isolated people from CALD backgrounds and connect them with existing or new support networks and activities.
Since 2011, the program has funded more than 200 community projects helping over 3,000 culturally diverse seniors to get involved and participate in the community.
Eligible organisations such as seniors clubs, ethnic community groups, migrant resource centres, neighbourhood houses, aged care facilities and local councils are invited to apply for funding up to $5000 or $10,000 for complex projects. Download the program guidelines for more information.
The program is accepting applications until Friday "" February 2016. Download the program application form here.
This program is delivered in partnership with the Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria.
For more information or additional support with the application process, please contact Fiona York at the Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria on (03) 9349 4122 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Round Four applications announced
As part of the Victorian Government’s Participation for CALD Seniors Grants Program, eligible organisations can apply for up to $10,000 to help generate opportunities for socially isolated CALD seniors to engage in their communities. The grants program has had four grant rounds over four years
Being socially active is important for health and wellbeing and evidence shows that older people from CALD backgrounds can face a higher risk of social isolation.
The program is delivered in partnership with the Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV).
