Grants to Florida nonprofit organizations in eligible cities for services to improve the quality of life for aging residents. Funding is intended for programs that address social isolation for residents over the age of 65, specifically in the areas of access to services, removing barriers to transportation, finances, and ageism. Funding is intended to serve residents of Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Pompano Beach, and Tamarac.

The project can be, but not limited to:

  • An expansion of existing successful programs.
  • A new program.
  • Replication of successful local or national program models.
  • Development of community networks and partnerships easily accessible by seniors.
  • Provision of community-based services needed by the targeted population and easily accessible by seniors.

Each project must meet one or both of the following outcomes:

  1. Increased/improved coordinated care, services, and social connections of isolated seniors that foster independence, improved well-being, decreased depression, vitality, functioning, and quality of life.
  2. Remove barriers, such as transportation, for seniors to engage socially.

Program designs for consideration include but are not limited to the following:

  • Activity based programs, which are services involving cultural, artistic, physical or interest-based activities in a group setting.
  • Friendship groups, which increase opportunities for social interactions and building friend networks.
  • Intergenerational programs that pair a senior with a younger person. Activities could include homework help, community projects, home maintenance, art groups, visiting programs.
  • Redesigned senior centers or adult day care centers that provide daily enrichment
  • activities.
  • Housing models that reduce senior isolation: roommate pairing, communal living arrangement with shared services.
  • Community Navigators who serve as outreach and advocates for those needing services.
  • Caregiver engagement to improve personal wellbeing and socialization of the senior under care.

Applicants must show they implement a cultural competent program to ensure that services are provided in a manner that respects the diversity of clients and provides for equal access to quality services. Diversity includes differences in race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, culture, religion, socioeconomic status, educational level, and physical and intellectual abilities.
