Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA tribal organizations and state agencies to support elderly populations impacted by natural disasters. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Applicants must consult with program staff prior to applying. Funding amounts will be determined according to the number of older adults affected and the severity of need.

Grants awarded under this announcement are to provide disaster reimbursement and assistance funds to those State Units on Aging (SUAs), and federally recognized Tribal Organizations who are currently receiving a grant under Title VI of the Older Americans Act (OAA), as amended. These funds only become available when the President declares a Major Disaster under the Robert T. Relief and Emergency Assistance Act and may only be used in those areas designated in the Major Disaster Declaration.

The amount of funding available to applicants is determined by three factors: (1) the number of older persons affected; (2) the amount and severity of need, and (3) the amount of disaster funds available as prescribed in the Older Americans Act (OAA).

Funds typically requested are for the following OAA Title III types of gap-filling services: outreach, information and assistance, counseling, case management, advocacy on behalf of older persons unable or reluctant to speak for themselves, and staff overtime. Funds may be used for additional food, supplies, extra home delivered meals, home clean up and safety, emergency medications, transportation and other such immediate needs. OAA funds may be used for permissible expenses incurred which are not or cannot be paid for through other disaster funding resources. Total funding available for disaster assistance is subject to the availability of funds appropriated under the OAA.
