Ontario Seniors Community Grant Program

Attention leaders of not-for-profit genealogy and family history and heritage organizations in Ontario.

The Ontario Seniors Community Grant Program is "designed to give seniors more opportunities to participate in their communities by providing funding to not-for-profit community groups for projects that encourage greater social inclusion, volunteerism and community engagement for seniors."

The Brant County Branch - Ontario Genealogical Society received $2,950 in 2015.

No other genealogy group has received funding in the three years of the program. Funding for heritage projects has been granted.

Why not genealogy in 2017?

The deadline for applications is 3 March 2017.

Grants range from $1,000 to $8,000 for a program total of $2 million.
