KEIRO® Grants to Increase Impact of Programs Serving Seniors in Their Communities

$900,000 Awarded to Advance Programs Serving
Japanese American and Japanese Older Adults throughout Southern California 
KEIRO® announced the recipients of its 2016 inaugural Grants Program cycle, with a total of $916,668 going to 44 local organizations providing sustainable programs representing a range of options that help Japanese American and Japanese older adults age well and age in place. Recognizing the impact that local organizations can have in enhancing the quality of senior life in our community, KEIRO created the Grants Program to provide enhanced services and resources, and to foster innovation in the area of senior care and quality of life. 
KEIRO's Grants Program invests in qualified non-profit organizations and groups through a competitive, community-based review process. In its inaugural cycle, the program funded projects ranging from program support, capital improvements, core operations, and capacity building. These projects received funding based on their alignment with KEIRO's strategies and goals; ability to address a pressing need or opportunity to serve older adults and caregivers; impact on the most vulnerable older adults in Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties; and cultural sensitivity unique to Japanese Americans and Japanese.
