More than $1.3 million has been allocated to round three of the Liveable Communities Grants Program to fund projects that will increase older people’s participation in activities in the community.

Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies said projects would be assessed on innovation and the potential to create sustainable long-term solutions to issues facing older people.

“We want NSW to lead the country in supporting fresh ideas that improve the lives of older people and the communities they live in,” Mrs Davies said.

“A liveable community means living without physical or mental barriers in place. When everyone does everything possible to remove those barriers, it makes for a happy and healthy community for older and younger people alike.”

The NSW Government encourages regional NSW applicants and projects targeted to indigenous communities to apply.

Applications close at 2pm on 20 November 2017.

Attend an information session
