Office for the Ageing Community Grants

The Age Friendly SA Grant Round, Grants for Seniors and Positive Ageing Grants programs reflect the State Government’s vision to bring the community together to create an all-ages-friendly state as outlined in Prosperity Through Longevity: South Australia’s Ageing Plan, Our Vision 2014-2019 (PDF 8MB).

Grants for Seniors

The aim of Grants for Seniors (GFS) program funding is to increase options for older people to participate in group and/or community activities, generally through the purchase of equipment or small scale program support. 

The first 2016/17 GFS funding round, specific to goods of up to $5,000 occurred in July 2016, with 21 successful organisations receiving grant funding.

The second and final 2016/17 GFS funding round specific to projects of up to $10,000 occurred in February 2017 and is now closed.

The first funding round for the 2017/18 GFS program is likely to occur in late 2017.

Positive Ageing Grants

The aim of the Positive Ageing Grants (PAG) program is to support projects that promote and progress the development of more positive community attitudes towards ageing and older people. 

The PAG program provides one-off ageing specific grants of between $10,000 and $30,000 for projects which promote positive ageing, and increase the participation of older South Australians.

The 2016/17 PAG funding round has closed. The 2017/18 PAG funding round is likely to occur in late 2017.

Age Friendly SA Grant Round

The aim of the Age Friendly SA Grant (AFSAG) program is to support partnership projects that encourage innovation to kick start sustainable longer term projects at both the local and state-wide level.

The 2017 AFSAG program provides grants of up to $25,000 for projects that:

  • promote stronger connections between generations
  • support people to make a contribution and/or have a say.

The 2017 AFSAG funding round has closed.
