The 2023 Seniors Month grants, a program that provides a funding pool to support community events during Queensland Seniors Month, is open for applications until 30 April.
Grants aim to connect older Queenslanders to inclusive events and activities and challenge preconceived ideas and reframe the conversation around ageing.
Queensland Seniors Month 2023 commences on 1 October, the United Nations International Day of Older Persons, and concludes at the end of the month following Grandparents Day on 29 October.
The theme for Seniors Month 2023 is ‘Social Connections’, and the Council on the Ageing Queensland (COTAQ) has adopted the tagline ‘It’s going to be a connect fest’ to promote the month.
Funded by the Queensland Government, eligible applicants can apply for a share in $100,000 to host Seniors Month events and activities by applying for a grant of up to $2,000.
