Request a Grant Writer

Awards to USA communities for excellence in effectively honoring, serving, and engaging all generations and in creating policies and practices that promote intergenerational collaboration and cooperation. Funding is intended to promote vibrant and healthy intergenerational communities that are good places to grow up and grow old.

Intergenerational communities refer to places that:
1) Provide adequately for safety, health, education and the basic necessities of life
2) Promote programs, policies, and practices that increase cooperation, interaction, and exchange between people of different generations
3) Enable all ages to share their talents and resources and support each other in relationships that benefit both individuals and their community.

Winning communities demonstrate that they are harnessing the energy and increasing the productivity that result when people of all ages come together.

Judgment criteria are based on demographics, services, programs, and organizational structure. Communities will be recognized for their specific intergenerational successes, not as compared to other applicants.

The selected communities will receive public recognition at Generations United's 19th Global Intergenerational Conference; national and local media exposure; a profile on Generations United's website and publicity through Generations United's social media outlets (e.g. Facebook and Twitter). Winning communities will also receive an award logo for use on websites and other materials and a physical award recognizing this accomplishment.
