AARP Foundation: Advancing Effective Solutions – Scaling Evidence-Based Solutions for Vulnerable Older AdultsDeadline: October 24, 2017
AARP Foundation works to ensure that low-income and vulnerable older adults have nutritious food; safe, secure, and affordable housing; a steady income and economic opportunities to grow and protect financial assets; and strong and sustaining social bonds. To address those needs, the Advancing Effective Solutions grant competition seeks evidence-based solutions that are guided by a deep level of engagement with AARP Foundation and that can be brought to scale.
The AARP Foundation is both a grant-maker and a direct service provider. As such, it works to identify new interventions that it can implement directly or through close collaboration with other organizations, including its grantees. Through the Advancing Effective Solutions grant competition, the Foundation hopes to scale interventions, with independent evaluations demonstrating evidence of effectiveness that serve vulnerable older adults, to increase economic opportunity and social connectedness.
