IRT Foundation's 2016 Community Grants round is now closed.

Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified in June 2016.

The Community Grants Program enables IRT Foundation to partner with the community to improve the lives of older Australians. We fund local initiatives so that together we may build age-friendly communities

Grants between $1000 and $20,000 are available to community groups for projects that will help people age positively. Projects of up to 12 months duration must be undertaken within IRT Group’s geographic footprint: South-East Queensland, the ACT, Sydney, Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Eurobodalla.

Age-friendly communities

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Age-Friendly Cities Framework identifies eight domains that can be used to identify and address barriers to the wellbeing and participation of older people.

IRT Foundation has selected three domains that help people to age positively as they move from their working life, transition into retirement and then into their later life.

These domains are:

  • Social Participation
  • Respect and social inclusion
  • Civic participation and employment
