Pratt-Stanton Manor Fund Grant

Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) - Pratt-Stanton Manor Fund


Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #158150

Grant Description

Grants to Louisiana nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to enhance the lives of older adults. Funding is intended to support programs and projects that fulfill basic needs, facilitate independent living, increase economic security, implement home modification programs, provide informal caregiver assistance, and other activities that improve quality of life for older adults. Funded projects must benefit the Greater New Orleans region.

The goal of the Pratt-Stanton Manor Fund is to help older adults live dignified, meaningful, and independent lives. Priority will be given to organizations in three areas of work:

  • Serve older adults, especially those living below the region’s median income level;
  • Serve the most frail and dysfunctional older adults who are living independently; and
  • Address most basic needs, including food, housing, long term care, activities for daily living, improving general quality of life, and delaying the onset of disability.

Requirements necessary to keep older adults living independently cut across project, program, and capital needs. 

The following are examples of project or program needs:

  • To provide informal caregiver support–initiatives that support the work of unpaid caregivers, including friends and family
  • To provide services and supports–basic needs and interventions designed to prevent or delay hospitalization
  • To promote economic security–initiatives that help older adults manage their resources, or connect with benefits available to them

The following are examples of capital needs:

  • To provide housing rehabilitation and repair services–home repairs and home modification programs designed to help older adults lead independent lives in their homes, or in independent care facilities
  • To provide capital support for residential care and community-based facilities–capital projects aimed at developing a friendly home-like environment, including senior centers, adult day programs, and other facilities that provide a non-institutional setting
