The Age-Friendly Community Local Government Grants Scheme was funded by the NSW Office for Ageing in Family and Community Services and was an initiative in the NSW Ageing Strategy 2012.
A total of $550,000 was made available for a period of two years (from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2014). Grants were one-off allocations of up to $25,000 for individual councils, or up to $60,000 for projects by two or more councils.
