Brookdale Foundation Funding Opportunity

The Brookdale Foundation Group recently issued its 2017 Request for Proposals (RFP) for those organizations that may be interested in:

  • establishing a group respite or early memory loss program for elders with dementia; or
  • expanding supportive services for grandparents and other relatives raising children (RAPP).

The mission of the Brookdale Foundation Group is to enhance the quality of life for America’s elderly, with a goal to develop high-quality, cost-effective programs to complement the existing services in the community for people with dementia. Currently, they offer seed grants for two national initiatives, the Group Respite Program and the Relatives as Parents Program. Click here for more information, including the application process.
