Grant Description
Awards of $20,000 to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs to recognize exemplary programs that address the needs of those caring for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The purpose of this award program is to acknowledge innovative projects and programs that benefit family and informal caregivers and people with dementia. Funds will support activities in the areas of public policy, creative expression, and diverse or multicultural communities.

These are monetary awards to recognize organizations that are responding to a community need with a program or project that focuses primarily on family caregivers of adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. 

One award will be given in each of the following three categories:

  • Creative Expression: Programs or projects that use novel, creative approaches to support persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their family/informal caregivers. Examples include art, music, theater, poetry, multimedia (e.g., film, documentary, radio), or technology used for creative engagement, or other types of creative expression.
  • Diverse/Multicultural Communities: Programs or projects that address a gap or chart a new way to deliver services, support, or outreach to family/informal caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias in diverse racial/ethnic, age, religious/spiritual, LGBTQ+, rural/remote, limited income, and other groups of caregivers with unique needs.
  • Public Policy: Programs or projects that advocate for policy or systems changes for the benefit of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and/or their family/informal caregivers. These efforts could focus on legislation, executive or administrative changes, media or public awareness campaigns, advocacy campaigns, or any other actions to strengthen public or private recognition and support of family/informal caregivers.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Not-for-profit and tribal organizations, government agencies, and universities addressing a community need with a program or project that focuses primarily on family/informal caregivers of adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias are eligible to apply. Note: Family/informal caregivers are unpaid caregivers. The term includes family members, friends, domestic partners, and neighbors.

Support for family/informal caregivers need not be the primary mission of the organization, agency, or university.

Currently, only agencies operating within the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii are eligible to apply.​

Nonprofit applicants must submit proof of their 501(c)(3) status or other nonprofit status.

The nominated program has to have been active during the calendar year of the award title, or the year prior. If the program involves a major culminating event, that event must have occurred prior to application deadline. If the program is active today because it is recurring, then it must have completed at least the first cycle or round of activity in order for it to qualify. Ongoing programs must have been active long enough to demonstrate some success.
