The Arthur N. Rupe Foundation is accepting Letters of Inquiry for projects designed to enhance family caregiving skills and alleviate family stress.
Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to California-based nonprofit organizations that provide training and support services to unpaid or family caregivers. Priority will be given to innovative and cost-effective projects designed to train and relieve non-professional caregivers providing home care to a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Projects should fill a gap in existing caregiver services and supports and benefit lower- and middle-income families that do not qualify for government assistance.
Grants may be used to initiate or expand a family caregiver support program. Projects of interest include but are not limited to evidence-based interventions, volunteer respite care programs, dementia friendly community programs, and Web-based and/or video training programs
To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or agency working in California.
LOIs must be received no later than April 10, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
See the Rupe Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
