Older people interested in singing and choir groups are set to benefit from a new grants program ‘Sing Your Age’. The NSW Government program will provide $150,000 in total to encourage more seniors to discover the joy of singing.

Sing Your Age’ is an important initiative that will see more people in our community enjoying the power of song. The program will be supported by the Australian National Choral Association (ANCA) which is now inviting singing groups and community organisations to apply for funding.

There are three grant categories including;

  • Category 1 – $100 to $1,000 for expanding existing singing groups to include older people
  • Category 2 – $1001 to $7,000 for creating a new singing group or choir in one location.
  • Category 3 – $7,000 to $15,000 for creating or expanding singing groups in multiple locations.


The grants can be used for promotions, professional conductor fees, professional accompanist fees, the purchasing of musical equipment, and venue hire. For more information about the Sing Your Age grants program or to apply for funding visit www.anca.org.au/facs-sing-your-age .
