Grants to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Connecticut nonprofit organizations for activities that strengthen community inclusion for older adults. A Letter of Intent must be submitted prior to the full proposal. Funding is intended to support activities that lead to age-friendly communities and address barriers to success in areas such as transportation, the built environment, housing, social and civic participation, employment, communication and information, and community support and health services.

Collaboration and Community Engagement grants support inclusive communities where older people are an asset. This work could include current or new activities that directly or indirectly lead to age-friendly communities and address barriers to success such as limited access to transportation or health care, ageist employment policies or other conditions that contribute to the social isolation of older people.

The Foundation will consider the intersection between policy and practice as well as collaborative community work.
