Seniors Festival Grants

The Department of Health and Human Services provides Strathbogie Shire Council with a Victorian Seniors Festival Active Living Grant to enable activities and events to be conducted throughout the month of October.

The theme for 2018 is Get Social, and we encourage you to do exactly that.

This year Council is making available grants for Senior Citizens groups to host activities or events that will benefit our community.


Avenel Senior Citizens, Euroa Third Age Club, Longwood Senior Citizens, Nagambie Senior Citizens and Violet Town Senior Citizens may each apply for a grant of up to $400.

To receive the grant the group is required to submit an application through the SmartyGrants Portal on the Strathbogie Shire Council website.

The event or activity should be free of charge for participants and held during the month of October.

The event should be advertised widely using the Seniors Festival Branding Toolkit, with inclusion of Strathbogie Shire Council promotional material.

The Seniors Festival Branding Toolkit is available HERE.

A basic Acquittal Form must be submitted via the SmartyGrants portal at the completion of the event or activity.

Completed Projects

Nagambie Seniors held a Bingo event which was a great success with 35 attendees.

The Euroa Third Age Club attended a wonderful lunch with current and new members enjoying each other’s company and a delicious meal.













Members of the Longwood and District Senior Citizens attended a lunch where they were able to catch-up and socialise with friends they had not seen for quite some time.  They all enjoyed the opportunity to do so.
