The Wetaskiwin Public Library is applying for the New Horizons for Seniors Program federal grant for 2012.  The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) is a federal grants program that supports projects led or inspired by seniors who make a difference in the lives of others and in their communities.  The program supports projects addressing the following objectives:


·       promoting volunteerism among seniors and other generations;

·       engaging seniors in the community through the mentoring of others;

·       supporting the social participation and inclusion of seniors.



The funds will be used by the Wetaskiwin Public Library in the following ways:


·       purchasing resources for the homebound service delivery program

·       arranging for transport expenses for seniors to attend the programs at the library

·       cover expenses for guest speaker presentation series


I am requesting for a letter of support to go along with our application that is due on Monday, September 12
