A grant opportunity for nonprofit organizations serving older adults with low incomes in Michigan and Maryland looking to scale proven social services and other support.
Stable healthy housing connected to social services and other support offers older adults the opportunity to age with dignity at home by enhancing their health and well-being. This grant opportunity will allow more older adults to access the social services and other supports they need to thrive. This grant is a part of Enterprise Community Partners’ (Enterprise) Thome Aging Well Program funded by the Edward N. and Della L. Thome Memorial Foundation, Bank of America trustee.
$75,000 - $300,000 depending on applicant needs and projected impact
A total of up to $6 million will be awarded to nonprofit organizations providing support to adults aged 55 or older with low incomes residing in the states of Maryland and Michigan.
Grants will be awarded to organizations that either seek to scale supportive services and programs (e.g., social engagement, emotional well-being, skills training, and physical, mental and financial health) or modifications to the built environment (accessibility, minor home repair, and building safety).
Awards will be distributed to organizations in both Maryland and Michigan; organizations will be selected based on the strength of the application without limitations on the number of grantees per state.
Period of Performance
Grants funded through this program will have a duration of up to 24 months. Grants will start on the date the agreement is executed by both parties, but no earlier than July 1, 2023. Enterprise will work closely with all organizations recommended for an award to determine an appropriate period of performance based on proposed activities, award size, and other factors, as applicable.
