Celebrating Queensland Seniors 2020




Subsidy Applications are now closed.

Queensland Seniors Month provides opportunities to promote positive community attitudes towards older people and ageing, facilitate community participation, and enhance community connections, aligning with the Queensland Government’s and COTA Queensland’s vision of building Age-friendly communities in Queensland.
An Age-friendly community is where older people are valued, respected and actively engaged in their community. They can stay in touch with people they care about and find the services and support they need. Age-friendly communities are more liveable for everyone.

During August 2020, Seniors Month will connect communities, providing opportunities for people to share and learn new experiences, discover services and support, and assist in reducing social isolation.

Funded by the Queensland Government, the program provides $100,000 to subsidise events and activities held during Seniors Month.

NOTE: The 2020 Seniors Month subsidy awarded will not exceed 50% of the total cost of the event for a maximum of $1000. Events held outside of Queensland Seniors Month, August 2020, and organisations funded in 2019 who did not acquit within the required timeframe are not eligible to apply.

All applications are managed through Smarty Grants, an online grants management system, including acquittals.

Subsidy applications will open Monday 3 February at 9am and close Sunday 15 March at 11:59pm.
