Awards of $20,000 to recognize USA nonprofits, agencies, and IHEs for projects or programs completed in 2016 or 2017 that benefited people with Alzheimer's, related dementias, and/or their family or informal caregivers. Awards are given in three distinct categories, including creativity, diversity, and policy/advocacy.

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.

Policy and Advocacy:
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.

One award of $20,000 will be given in three categories.

The nominated program or project has to have been active during the calendar year of 2016 and/or 2017. If the program or project involves a major culminating event, that event must have occurred prior to the application deadline.

Not for profit 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. For example, past winners include a library, songwriting organization, and pubic advocacy group.

Only agencies operating within the continental United States and Hawaii are eligible to apply. Nonprofit applicants must submit proof of their 501(c)(3) status or other nonprofit status.

The nominated program or project has to have been active during the calendar year of 2016 and/or 2017. If the program or project involves a major culminating event, that event must have occurred prior to the application deadline.

For the Policy and Advocacy and Creative Expression categories, program or project may be related to either family/informal caregivers or persons with dementia or both.

For the Diversity/Multicultural Communities category, program/project must be specific to family/informal caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's disease or related dementias.

The applicant or other designated program or project representatives must be willing to share information about their program with others, including a presentation at a national professional conference, and to write up additional information to appear on FCA's website and/or future publications. Award recipients may also be asked to provide information about how the award was used to further advance the mission of the organization, agency, or university.

Applicants must designate the category in which they would like to be considered. Applicants are competing only against others within their chosen category. If the judges feel that the applicant would be better suited for another category, they will contact the applicant directly.

Deadline: Monday September 11, 2017, 5:00 PM Pacific Time

Award recipients will be notified by the end of December 2017.

2017 Award recipients will be honored at a reception on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at the American Society on Aging’s Aging in America (AiA18) conference in San Francisco. The awardees will have an opportunity to present a short slide presentation and talk about their program.
