New and innovative projects that will help seniors stay active and engaged are part of Ontario’s plan to support care, create opportunity, and make life more affordable for seniors and their families.
The Cambridge YMCA is receiving $12,000 from the Seniors Community Grant program, for a recruitment strategy for seniors to increase participation in exercise and education programs.
“Supporting healthy, active seniors here in Cambridge and across the province is a priority for this government. With the Seniors Community Grant program, local seniors are benefitting from community-run projects that keep them engaged and socially connected,” said Kathryn McGarry, MPP Cambridge.
Across the province, Seniors Community Grant funding supports projects helping seniors find volunteer opportunities, engage in life-long learning, and stay active. This year, the program has been expanded to support larger projects that will reach even more seniors across the province.
The program was expanded this year and for the first time, some organizations received up to $100,000 for projects that are larger in scope and benefit more seniors over a longer period of time. As highlighted in Aging with Confidence: Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors, new investments in the Seniors Community Grant program will allow it to further expand and reach more seniors across the province.
Ontario’s 2018 Budget is supporting seniors and their families by:
