Retirement Research Foundation invites applications for projects in aging

For more than forty years, the Chicago-based Retirement Research Foundation has been a steadfast supporter of programs and research that significantly improve the quality of life for older people.

To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its grantmaking program in support of projects that have immediate and direct impact on the adult population, age 65 and older. Priority areas include:

Caregiving: Ensuring that care partners (including family members, friends, or neighbors) are informed, well-trained, and supported as they care for older people in community settings.

Housing: Promoting efforts that make housing more affordable and provide coordinated services that enable older people to remain living in the community safely and with dignity.

Economic Security in Later Life: Valuing the dignity of older people through efforts that ensure and protect their economic security and well-being.

Social and Intergenerational Connectedness: Reducing isolation and loneliness in later life through efforts to strengthen meaningful social bonds, including those that span generations.

Grants will be awarded in support of advancements in the field of aging through various pathways, including advocacy, direct service, research, professional education and training, and organizational capacity building. While the priority areas reflect RRF’s primary funding interests, the foundation will consider compelling applications on other topics.

Letters of Inquiry are due March 1, 2022, and selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals by May 1, 2022.

Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as public charities, or nonprofit organizations that are not required to have a 501(c)(3) designation, such as state-funded universities and Area Agencies on Aging.

For additional information and complete application instructions, see the Retirement Research Foundation website.

Deadline: March 1, 2022 (Letters of Inquiry)
