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.
