Grants to nonprofit organizations to address the needs of Massachusetts residents in eligible regions. The purpose of this program is to improve the quality of life of low-income residents with disabilities and and elderly residents. Grant funds may also be used to help individuals with visual impairments or complex medical problems or to provide emergency fuel assistance or palliative care. Programs and projects should benefit residents of Plymouth County and the contiguous towns.

Preference is given to those organizations that offer direct service to elderly and disabled individuals to assist them in remaining in their homes despite economic, physical or other hardships. In addition to helping various VNAs in the area, the Curtis Trust also supports organizations that subsidize the cost of fuel, electricity, and other expenses that face low income elder or disabled individuals who live in their homes. 
The Trustees look favorably upon applicant organizations governed by a Board of Directors which demonstrate a positive history of accomplishment, stability and low employee turnover.  The Curtis Trust expects applicant organizations to demonstrate a commitment to sound management of trust funds and to complete timely and well documented quarterly reports which record the use of the funds.
