The County of Simcoe is accepting applications until May 31 for the 2023 age-friendly housing grant program for projects that incorporate accessible, adaptable and inclusive designs, “which allow seniors to continue to live independently in their communities for as long as possible.”

Grants will be awarded under three streams: accessible housing design for seniors; design for individuals with dementia; and the provision of support services for housing that incorporates enhanced aspects of accessibility over and above compliance with the Accessibility of Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and building code standards for residential units.

Housing projects must be located within Simcoe County (excluding the cities of Barrie and Orillia) and builders that obtained an Age-Friendly Seniors Housing grant in the past three years are not eligible to apply in 2023.

Applicants can be homeowners of principal residences or developers, who wish to include accessible, adaptable and inclusive design modifications for occupants aged 60 or older. Grant amounts will be distributed based on the number of applications received and ability to meet funding criteria.

A committee will evaluate each grant submission in accordance with established evaluation criteria. The deadline for 2023 application submissions is May 31, 2023.
