AARP Foundation Issues RFP for Evidence-Based Solutions for Vulnerable Older Adults

The AARP Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Association of Retired Persons, works to ensure that low-income and vulnerable older adults have access to nutritious food; safe, secure, and affordable housing; a steady income with economic opportunities to grow and protect financial assets; and strong and sustaining social bonds.

To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its Scaling Evidence-Based Solutions for Vulnerable Older Adults program, which seeks to address housing security, social connections, income security, and/or food-security needs with evidence-based solutions that can be brought to scale. Grant amounts will be determined on a project-by-project basis.

Eligible applicants include institutions of higher education, public entities, and nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, as well as other types of nonprofit and for-profit organizations. Applicant organizations must be based in the United States or one of its territories.

For complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and application instructions, see the AARP Foundation website.

Deadline: October 24, 2017
