Whitehorse Intergenerational Grants

The Whitehorse Intergenerational Grants support activities that foster connections between generations, celebrate the valuable contribution of older people, and improve the health and wellbeing of older people in our community.

The 2023 Whitehorse Intergenerational Grant Program is now closed. Applications for the 2024 Grants Program open in February 2024.

About the Intergenerational Grants

Several Information Sessions and Grant Writing Workshops are offered to assist your understanding of the different grant categories and the application process. Bookings are required. Book in to a session online.

The Intergenerational Grants are now a subcategory of the Positive Ageing Participation Grant. For more information on the Council’s Community Grants Program, please visit the Grants for the Community webpage.

Grant objectives

  • to enable connections and encourage collaboration between children and older people in the local community
  • to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, skills and experience between generations
  • to tackle ageism towards older people


Primary and secondary schools, early years’ services and kindergartens in Whitehorse are eligible to apply for a grant of up to $1000 to expand existing intergenerational activities or to develop a new project. Grant submissions will be assessed and applicants will be notified regarding the outcome of their application.
