Age friendly grants

Need funding to help make your community more age-friendly?

Applications are now open for innovative age-friendly community projects that will enable people of all ages to actively participate in community life.

Queensland Government’s vision is to build an age-friendly state in which all Queenslanders, regardless of their age, can stay active and connected, and contribute economically, socially and culturally.

Over 3 years from 2017-18, $1 million per annum is available through open funding rounds to seed fund community projects involving partnerships with local government and other organisations to co-develop, implement and promote innovative age-friendly projects.

The 2019-20 grants round focuses on innovative approaches, responses and solutions to local issues that meet the criteria set out by the World Health Organization’s eight age-friendly domains, with a specific focus this year on:

  • communication and information
  • social participation.

Applications can be made across multiple domains and will close at 5pm on Monday 10 June 2019.
