Small Grant for First Quarter 2020
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.
