FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                             

OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, would like to inform constituents that the government has announced an additional investment of $20 million in the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This funding will support organizations that offer community-based projects that reduce isolation, improve the quality of life of seniors, and help them maintain a social support network during the pandemic.

The goal of this program is to invest in community-based projects as equitably and quickly as possible across the country to help seniors during the pandemic.

To meet these objectives, the government is working with organizations that applied to the NHSP’s ‘2019 to 2020 Call For Proposals’ to identify new projects eligible for funding.
