FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OTTAWA:  Gerald Soroka Member of Parliament for Yellowhead wishes to advise the launching of the 2020–21 New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) Call for Proposals for community-based projects.

This year, organizations will be able to apply for funding to support seniors dealing with the pandemic by submitting project proposals that offer specific COVID-19 relief and recovery activities for seniors.

Organizations are invited to apply for funding that supports the NHSP national priorities for this cycle:

  • Supporting healthy ageing
  • Preventing elder abuse and fraud
  • Combatting ageism, celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion
  • Improving seniors’ access to government services and benefits
  • Adapting community-based organizations to a more virtual environment

Organizations are still welcome to submit proposals for more traditional NHSP projects that they plan to deliver in 2021–22.

The 2020–21 NHSP community-based Call for Proposals is open until October 20, 2020.
