Description: On June 8, 2022, at 12:00 noon Eastern Daylight Time, the Government of Canada launched the Age Well at Home (AWAH) 2022-2023 Calls for Proposals (CFPs) for projects across Canada. This initiative has two distinct streams; Scaling up for Seniors and In-Home Support Pilot Projects.
The deadline to submit applications is July 22, 2022, at 3:00 pm Eastern Daylight Saving Time. If your organization would like to apply for funding or learn more about this funding opportunity, please consult the Employment and Social Development Canada Funding Programs page.
Scaling up for Seniors:
Employment and Social Development Canada will accept project proposals from eligible organizations that focus on both objectives:
- scale up services, previously delivered in Canada, that have already shown positive results in helping seniors age at home; and
- deliver services directly to beneficiaries (seniors or seniors-serving organizations) to help seniors age at home.
For this stream the minimum request is $100K and the maximum request is $2M per project.
In-Home Support Pilot Projects:
Employment and Social Development Canada will invest in projects from eligible organizations that focus on providing services to low-income and otherwise vulnerable seniors, primarily in the seniors’ homes who need help to age at home, primarily through volunteers. The objectives of the initiative are to:
- expand delivery of volunteer-based eligible services to low-income and otherwise vulnerable seniors, primarily in the seniors’ homes to help them age at home, by offering additional eligible services and/or offering existing eligible services to more seniors; and
- provide a service that helps low-income and otherwise vulnerable seniors navigate and gain access to eligible services provided by other organizations active in the local area.
For this stream the minimum request is $300K and maximum request is $800K per project.
