Mulgoa MP, Tanya Davies is encouraging local organisations to apply for funding under the NSW Seniors Week Grants Program.
The Seniors Week Grant Program provides funding to not-for-profit community groups, charities, public companies and Local Government bodies to create activities to celebrate NSW Seniors Week, which will be held from 15 to 23 March 2014.
“Seniors make a tremendous contribution to our community through volunteering, mentoring and other activities, and Seniors Week is a great opportunity to recognise the outstanding work they do,” Tanya Davies said.
The NSW Government has allocated $200,000 for the 2014 NSW Seniors Week Grants program which is $25,000 more than in previous years.
Tanya Davies said she was pleased the grant program had been extended for another year following a successful Seniors Week in 2013.
Applications for the 2014 NSW Seniors Week Grants program close on Friday,
6 September 2013, and can be submitted at www.seniorsweek.com.au. For further information, please contact the Seniors Information Service on 13 12 44.
