Our Helping Seniors (Small Grant) program is intended to assist any private citizen or organization (student, civic, etc.) who wishes to assist an individual or group of seniors by completing a project that could improve their living conditions or quality of life. Examples might include building a handicap ramp at the private home of a senior; adding senior-friendly activity equipment at a local park; developing and provisioning an activity program for a senior living facility; repairing/improving in-home accessibility or outdoor safety at a home.
So far this year, we have awarded grants to assist seniors with such services as tree removal.
A single grant of up to $1000 will be awarded each quarter. For 1st quarter 2020, the application period opens on January 1; completed applications should be returned by the February 15 deadline; submissions will be reviewed and one grant will be awarded by March 15. Any government or agency permissions required would also need to be obtained by the applying person/organization.
