Community Care Corps Welcomes its Fourth Cohort of Grantees

Earlier this month, Community Care Corps announced that it has awarded $4 million in funding to 30 new grantees for the 2023-2025 grant cycle. This cohort of grantees will develop or enhance innovative local programs that use volunteers to provide family caregivers, older adults and adults with disabilities with nonmedical assistance to help maintain their independence. These volunteer-based models provide supports such as shopping, running errands, home maintenance and repair, and teaching the use of technology to help people connect with loved ones and much-needed medical care.

Unique to this grant cycle, Community Care Corps has funded seven of the 2023-2025 grantees to assist older adults and adults with disabilities with transportation to and from non-emergency medical appointments and outpatient procedures.
