This becomes Cohort 2, expanding efforts currently underway in eight initiatives supported by The Grotta Fund for Senior Care and The Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation.
Year One funding will support community-based planning and initial implementation of community improvements, depending on the needs of the community. Year Two funding will propel successful Year One grantees to expand their efforts.
Prior to applying, applicants should have a deep understanding of the community, community leaders, efforts that are already underway to advance age-friendly and livable community improvements, organizations that benefit older adults that can co-lead and partner efforts, and other Age-Friendly efforts nationally and internationally.
