Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 to Central Oklahoma nonprofits for direct services to elderly adults that are living independently. Applicants are encouraged to attend an informational meeting on February 19, and a request to apply must be submitted by March 26, 2018. Grants may be made for existing or new direct services programs, and may also be made for equipment involved in a direct service program.

Services to be supported are those that:

- Encourage and enable older adults to live independently, outside of institutional settings and address specific needs that allow independent living to continue.
- Support wellness and exercise activities that encourage better health for older adults, specifically those that are still living in their homes.
- Provide positive social and recreational opportunities for older adults who are otherwise isolated or unable to participate in community programs.

Priority will be given to projects that leverage other resources and that demonstrate cooperation between two or more organizations.

Please note: Previous grantees can re-apply for additional funding if program was successfully completed and proposed goals were achieved. A new application from a previous grantee should be for a significant program expansion or new program/activity.
