15 May 2017 –
Applications are now open for the first round of the Advancing Queensland: an age-friendly grants program. We’re looking for innovative local ideas to improve outdoor spaces and buildings, housing, or transport so people of all ages can actively participate in community life.
This grants program is the first of its kind for the state and I look forward to seeing creative solutions to some of the barriers members in our community currently face as they get older.
Applications are welcome from any organisation with a plan to make our community more accessible for older people; this includes local government, research institutions, and private and not-for-profit organisations.
Applications for the first round close at 5pm, Friday 16 June.
