Office for the Ageing Community Grants

The 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. Projects that foster wellbeing, active ageing and recognise diversity are encouraged.

Two funding rounds will be offered for the Grants for Seniors program in 2016/17. The first funding round is specific to goods of up to $5,000 and is now open. A second funding round specific to projects of up to $10,000 will be offered in the first quarter of 2017.

2016/17 Grants for Seniors round one is now open, online applications are due by 5pm on Friday 19 August 2016.

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 funding round for Positive Ageing Grants is now closed. Please contact the Office for the Ageing for more information.
