The Ministry of Health has confirmed a contribution of $0.5 million to UBCM’s Seniors’ Housing & Support Initiative for additional grants under the Age-friendly Community Planning & Projects program.

The 2016 Age-friendly Community Planning & Project program is intended to assist local governments in BC to best support aging populations, develop and implement policies and plans and/or develop projects that enable seniors to age in place and facilitate the creation of age-friendly communities.

A maximum of 25 grants of up to $20,000.00 are available to local governments in BC for community planning initiatives or community projects.

The application deadline is October 30, 2015 and applicants will be notified of the status of their application by December 11, 2015.  Program and application materials are available on the UBCM website.
