RRF Accepting Applications for Projects to Improve the Lives of Older Americans

The Retirement Research Foundation is accepting proposals from nonprofit organizations for local and national projects aimed at improving the quality of life for older Americans.

Grants will be awarded in support of projects that provide direct services, advocacy, education, and training programs for professionals working with elders, as well as for research that investigates the causes of and solutions to significant problems of older adults. Projects with a local focus will be considered from organizations based in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Florida. However, advocacy, training, and research projects of national relevance are considered from organizations located anywhere in the United States. Grant amounts will be determined on a project-by-project basis.

While not required, RRF will accept Letters of Intent until December 1, 2016. Full proposals must be received no later than February 1, 2017.

To be eligible, organizations must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

See the RFF website for eligibility and application guidelines, as well as examples of previously awarded grants and grant amounts.
