Grants to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island nonprofits for projects that promote community inclusion for senior citizens and vulnerable populations.

Consideration will be given to projects carried out by community leaders working with multiple stakeholders to achieve a common goal.

This work could include current or new activities that directly or indirectly lead to age-friendly communities and address barriers to success in the most vulnerable communities. The Foundation will consider the intersection between policy and practice as well as collaborative community work in the built environment, transportation, housing, social and civic participation and inclusion, employment, communication and information, and community support and health services.
