SD&SG – Seniors’ groups, municipalities and other stakeholders have about a month to apply for a provincial grant program.

The Ontario government has a $1 million pot of money to give out under the Ontario Seniors Community Grant Program.

Grant amounts will be in the range of $500 to $8,000.

It’s open to senior-focused non-profits, service boards and aboriginal groups as well for projects that allow senior networking and activity in the community.

Local MPP Jim McDonell is encouraging groups to put in their paperwork as the deadline to file is March 27.

You can get more information and guidelines on the Ontario government website.
