Services for the Elderly

Grants are awarded to charitable organizations providing direct services for our community’s older citizens who are still living in their homes. Eligible services will:

  • 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.
