Request a Grant Writer

Awards of $20,000 to USA government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and IHEs to recognize exemplary programs and projects that address the needs of those caring for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The purpose of this award program is to acknowledge outstanding programs and projects in 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, theatre, 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.
