Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites Letters of Intent for Community Partnerships for Older Adults Program
Deadline: January 9, 2004 (Letters of Intent)

Community Partnerships for Older Adults, a $20-million, multi-year initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation ( ), is designed to foster the efforts of local public-private partnerships to improve long-term care and supportive services for at-risk older adults.

In the program’s second round of funding, up to seventeen communities will receive development grants of up to $150,000. Development grantees then will have an opportunity to compete for grants to implement the activities described in their plans, with twelve development grantees being selected for implementation grant awards averaging $750,000 over four years.

To be eligible, an applicant must demonstrate that a core group of community leaders has been working together as a partnership for at least two years. Partnerships must encompass a geographic area with at least 10,000 residents aged 60 or older. Exceptions will be made for rural communities. Statewide efforts/agencies as well as universities, hospital-based health systems, professional associations, and for-profit entities are not eligible to apply.

Proposals will be evaluated based on evidence of the partnership’s success in improving the lives of older adults; the clarity and feasibility of the project’s scope, goals, objectives, strategic plan, and budget; and meaningful participation by older adults.
