Family and Caregiver Support Program Grants Available
Funding is available from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation for community partners to build programs to help families and caregivers of older adults.
Most frail older adults are cared for by family, friends and other nonprofessionals. With this funding initiative, the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation will help community partnerships develop innovative ways to support these devoted caregivers.
Up to $9 million over three years through the Family and Informal Caregiver Support Program will support from 12 to 20 community-based Projects with grants ranging from $100,000 to $300,000 per year (for a total of $300,000 to $900,000 for each grant recipient from March 2009 through February 2012).
The Foundation encourages non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations, including aging and human service agencies, faith-based and other community-based organizations, tribal organizations, and units of local government to participate.
