Community Care Corps Issues Request for Proposals


 

Community Care Corps has announced a Request for Proposals (RFP) for innovative local models in which volunteers assist family caregivers or directly assist older adults or adults with disabilities with non-medical care to maintain their independence. The RFP is now available to review and can be found at www.CommunityCareCorps.org.

Community Care Corps will award competitive grants between $30,000 and $150,000 for new applicants. Current Community Care Corps grantees may apply for second year funding up to $100,000 or 100% of the previous award amount, whichever is less.

The purpose of the project is to establish, enhance, or grow volunteer programs for over-burdened family caregivers, older adults, and persons with disabilities. A wide range of nonprofit entities, such as faith- and community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, and service organizations, as well as state, county, and local governments are encouraged to apply. Community Care Corps seeks to fund local models that represent a diverse cross section of the nation reflective of demographics and geography, urban/rural/frontier, and Tribal communities, underserved and limited English-speaking populations, communities with limited support programs, and more.

To learn more, view the RFP, and access the FAQ, visit www.CommunityCareCorps.org.
