This is to advise you that the Call for Proposals for the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) Pan Canadian funding has now been posted on the Internet. The deadline to apply is November 25, 2011.
Funding for larger pan-Canadian grant or contribution projects can provide support for networking, developing and delivering education and awareness activities, and creating tools and resources to help seniors protect themselves from elder abuse including fraud and financial abuse. The funding can also enable community members to better recognize elder abuse in all its forms and to improve the quality of life, safety and security of seniors.
Pan-Canadian projects identify and share promising practices across the country on what has worked well to address seniors' issues and can be replicated.
Eligible Pan-Canadian projects must have broad reach and impact, and can be funded for up to three years.
* may address a provincial/territorial or regional need or address needs shared by communities across Canada;
