Grants to Broward County, Florida nonprofit organizations for programs that meet the needs of, and improve the quality of life for, residents over the age of 65. Funding is intended for programs that address social isolation in the aging population, specifically in the areas of access to services, removing barriers to transportation, and mental health.
The Collaborative (Community Foundation, Jewish Federation, and UWBC) has identified the narrowed focus for applications that will respond to this RFP. It seeks applications that demonstrate an effective way to counter social isolation and its effects among the aging population (65+) residing in one of the following municipalities, where the majority of the over 65 population resides: Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Pompano Beach, and Tamarac.
Of special note is that while United Way and Jewish Federation will support projects that serve seniors from 65 and up, the Community Foundation of Broward will grant only to projects that serve seniors age 80+ as this population experiences more acute issues of isolation due to immobility and health issues.
The Program should result in a greater number of older adults in the community whose social isolation is being addressed. The programs can be expansion of existing successful programs, new approaches, application of successful programs addressing other populations, or replicating successful local or national programs models. The program should be replicable, so that other organizations can develop similar programs to reach other older adults. The proposal should include what they will develop that could be used by others to replicate the program. The proposal should state the program goals and how they would be measured.
Projects must meet one or more of the following outcomes:
-Increased/improved coordinated care, services, and social connections of isolated seniors that foster independence, improved well-being, vitality, functioning, and quality of life
-Remove transportation barriers for seniors to engage socially
-Decreased depression with remarkable improvement in mental health
In choosing a program model and preparing the agency’s application please consider the following elements:
-Comprehensive assessment for social isolation
-Incorporation of person-centered practices and principles
-Development of community networks and partnerships
-Provision of community based services needed by the targeted population
-Incorporation of cultural competence and equity of care
GrantWatch ID#: 167121
Grants may be requested for up to $100,000 per project.
The Collaborative intends to commit grant funds to support the approved applications over a period of up to 12 months. The initial funding agreement will begin July 1, 2019. Awarded agencies can potentially receive grant funds to support the program for the following two years.
Subsequent funding is contingent upon: 1. Continued demonstrated and documented need for the services; 2. Satisfactory program performance by the provider; and 3. Availability of funds from the Collaborative.
