The Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for our Systems and Best Practices cycle of community investments. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at 4 p.m. EST. Grants will run from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.

With our new focus, the Foundation is looking for ideas that will move communities toward accomplishing the World Health Organization's standards for Age-friendly Communities. Specifically in the area of Systems and Best Practices, the Foundation will fund activities in Health and Wellness,  Workforce Development,  Purposeful Engagement, and Field and Capacity Building.

We will also accept applications for a new area of community investing, the Foundation President's Leadership Fund, which is designed to support community leaders in their work with multiple stakeholders toward a common community goal.
