Seniors Care Grant Applications are Now Open

Applications for the Seniors Care Grant are now open.
The Seniors Care Grant aims to help low-income seniors with the cost of household services (like lawn care, snow removal, grocery delivery, transportation, small home repairs and phone service) and healthcare services (like physiotherapy and mental health support). Earlier this year, it was expanded to include more services and provide a one-time $250 emergency heating grant to eligible seniors.
The heating grant will be available to all eligible Nova Scotians 65 and older, including people who have received the Seniors Care Grant and the Heating Assistance Rebate Program in the past year.
Seniors will be eligible for up to a maximum of $750 this fiscal year.
