Grants totaling an estimated $200,000 for programming to provide community education on at-risk older adults in Connecticut. The overall goal of the funding is to increase the needed attention, education and resources for older adults, especially older adults at risk. Applicants will need to provide training for non-traditional service providers such as barbers, postal workers etc. to be able to identify and refer adults who are at-risk. A person at-risk is defined as having mental health issues or substance abuse disorder. The target age of this grant is for 55 and older.

The foundation seeks organizations who have a proven track record working with individuals who require services in order to live independently in the community, particularly older adults with mental health and addiction illnesses. Staff of organizations will be required to attend training seminars throughout the year.
