Retirement Research Foundation invites applications for projects in aging

For more than 40 years, the Chicago-based Retirement Research Foundation has supported programs and research that significantly improve the quality of life for older people.

To that end, the foundation accepts applications for its grantmaking program to support projects directly impacting the adult population aged 65 and older. While nearly half of RRF grants will support programs in the Midwest, the foundation also supports innovative solutions that assist older Americans nationwide. Priority areas include:

Caregiving: Ensuring unpaid care partners are informed, well-trained, and supported while providing care to an older loved one.

Housing: Promoting efforts that make housing more affordable and provide support to 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.

Organizational Capacity Building: Improving management, governance, and sustainability in Illinois nonprofits that serve older people.

Grants will be awarded to support aging advancements through various pathways, including advocacy, direct service, research, professional education and training, and organizational capacity building.

Letters of inquiry are due November 15, 2022, and selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals by February 5, 2023.

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: November 15, 2022
