Sault Ste. Marie – The provincial government is investing $19,168 in five projects in Sault Ste. Marie through the Seniors Community Grant program, which will help seniors stay connected, active and engaged in their communities, announced David Orazietti MPP today.
“The Seniors Community Grant program supports local projects and encourages seniors engagement in the community focussing on learning, volunteerism and physical activity,” said Orazietti. “It is important to honour and acknowledge the many contributions that seniors make in our province not only during Seniors’ Month but every day.”
The funding supports local projects including:
The program, now in its third year, is the province’s first grant program dedicated solely to supporting seniors. It focuses on initiatives and projects in the non-profit sector that encourage greater social inclusion, volunteerism, education and community engagement for seniors across the province.
Projects can support seniors at a local, regional or provincial level and are reflective of the diversity of Ontario’s seniors population.
Keeping seniors engaged is part of the government’s plan to help seniors stay active and safe in their communities.
