Grants to New York non-profits and public agencies to address healthcare challenges of patients age 65 and older in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario, Wayne, Seneca, Orleans, Wyoming, and Yates Counties. Preliminary applications are due by January 15 for consideration. Interventions funded are intended to improve the quality of care provided and/or reduce the cost of providing clinical care to older adults.

Proposals that address one or more of the following six areas of special interest are invited. The Foundation also encourages applicants to address the needs of people whose healthcare needs have not been met because of race, ethnicity, or income. Providers of clinical services may propose projects outside of these areas of interest that are consistent with the purpose of this funding, yet priority will be given to interventions addressing the following:

1) Medication Management - Proposed interventions should be designed to reduce inappropriate medication use, increase adherence to drug regimens, and reduce the likelihood of medication errors and adverse drug effects among older adults.

2) Diagnosis and Treatment of Depression - Organizations that propose projects involving assessment of older adults for depression, as well as clinical/medical models of intervention, are invited to apply. Social models of intervention will not be funded through this grant program.

3) Management of the Needs of Persons with Dementia - Proposed interventions should be designed to allow individuals with dementia to remain in the least restrictive living environment, address health needs of community dwelling individuals, or address behavioral symptoms of individuals in any setting that may impede quality of life, cause caregiver stress, and worsen functional decline.

4) Hospice Care - Proposed interventions may include, but are not limited to, efforts to increase patient and family satisfaction with hospice care, increase the length of service for patients over 65 in hospice, and increase the rates of people of color who utilize hospice care.

5) Palliative Care - Proposed interventions may include, but are not limited to, projects that help individuals with potentially life threatening or life-altering diagnoses access and utilize palliative care services.

6) Clinical Services in the Home - Proposed interventions should be designed to: support innovative care models, enhance communication, provide timely access to care, and help assure continuity of care for patients 65 and older living outside of institutional settings.

Grant funds may be used to support project staff salaries, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, project-related travel, evaluation costs, and other direct expenses, including equipment essential to the project.

$1.5M per year will be available for projects in 2015-2017. The Health Foundation anticipates funding between six and 10 projects in 2015-2017 and invites proposals of varying scopes and sizes. The Health Foundation intends to continue partnerships with the most successful projects to assist in developing plans for expansion and/or replication of projects after the three-year grant period expires.
