Grants to Nevada nonprofits, for-profits, and public agencies for meal services for older adults. Funding is intended to expand or create new home-delivered and congregate meal programs for adults over the age of 60, particularly those who are frail, low-income, or in other risk categories.

In keeping with the Older Americans Act, Reauthorization Act of 2016, special consideration for funding will be given to applicants evidencing service priority to low-income, frail individuals, age 60 or older, in the following categories:
- Individuals in a minority group;
- Individuals with limited English proficiency;
- Individuals at risk for institutional placement;
- Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders with neurological and organic brain dysfunction (and caregivers of such individuals);
- Individuals with the greatest economic or social need; and
- Individuals residing in rural areas.

Available funding is approximately $2.25M for congregate meals and $5.9M for home-delivered meals in year one of a two-year cycle; year two will be determined based on available funding and service priorities established by the Division. The funding amount and number of awards will be determined based on competitive scoring, regional allocations and administrator decision.
