Call for Concepts: December 6, 2018 – January 21, 2019
The Government of Canada is accepting applications from organizations interested in receiving contribution funding from the pan-Canadian stream of the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). Eligible organizations can apply for $500,000 to $5 million for a project consisting of a 3 to 5 year collective impact initiative.
The pan-Canadian stream of the NHSP has approximately $8 million available per year for five years to distribute to eligible organizations. It is anticipated that up to ten organizations submitting collective impact initiatives will receive funding through this process.
Through this call for concepts process (CFC), initiatives will be funded that support the development and implementation of collaborative approaches to increase the social inclusion of seniors. Social inclusion is the ability to fully participate in, contribute to and benefit from all aspects of society.
This process seeks to ensure that seniors can benefit from and contribute to the quality of life in their communities. More specifically, this process seeks to:
To determine how funding will be allocated, the Government of Canada is launching a two-step application process. This first step is a competitive call for concepts. You are invited to provide high-level information about your project to determine the need and complexity of an issue that is impacting seniors’ well-being. Complex issues suited to these projects are those that are not easy to resolve, have persisted over time and cannot be solved in isolation. As this is a competitive process, not all applications will be retained.
If you are successful in the first step of this application process, you will be invited to develop a full project proposal. At that time, you will be required to provide additional information and go into further details about your proposed concept, such as a well-articulated plan for funding collaborating organizations. Additional information and documents about the project will also be requested. Another document with specific instructions will be provided to those applicants.
Over the next two years, up to $5 million is being dedicated to help seniors across Ontario. Through this Program, projects can support seniors at local community or regional levels, or have a broader provincial scope. Larger capacity building and scalable projects are encouraged to focus on projects that leverage local partnerships and collaboration towards initiatives and results that can be shared across organizations interested in programs and services for seniors.
In addition to the existing grant streams, MSA is now making up to $100,000 available to incorporated organizations to plan, implement or evaluate projects that build and sustain local, provincial and regional capacity for healthy aging. This new stream is aimed at providing funding for projects and activities that encourage greater social inclusion, learning, volunteerism, and community engagement.
