A SHARE IN $200,000 FOR 2019 SENIOR’S FESTIVAL
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is urging local organisations to apply for a share of $200,000 to host events that encourage older people to join or feature in 2019 NSW Seniors Festival events and activities.
Mr Anderson said applications are open for Seniors Festival grants and I encourage local councils, volunteer groups and community organisations to apply.
“We want our seniors to thrive in the community and the Festival provides opportunities for older people to not only enjoy entertainment, but get involved and share their talents with our community.
“After the success of this year’s Festival we want to ramp it up in 2019, with support for organisations to bring the Festival to life through a broader range of activities,” Mr Anderson concluded.
The 2019 NSW Seniors Festival will run from February 13 to 24 and organisations are encouraged to plan events now, with three funding categories available:
• Tier 1 grants of up to $1000 for small-scale local events or activities targeted at community organisations and schools,
• Tier 2 grants from $1,001 to $5000 for local events targeted at larger community organisations, and
• Tier 3 grants from $5,001 to $10,000 for broader community events targeted at local councils in partnership with organisations and groups.
Grant applications close at 5pm on Friday 10 August 2018.
