Alzheimer’s Foundation of America: Family Respite Care GrantsDeadline: December 1, 2016
The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s (AFA’s) Family Respite Care Grant helps alleviate the cost of respite care for families caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. The grants are awarded to AFA’s nonprofit member organizations, which must utilize the funds to provide scholarships to clients with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia and/or their families with financial needs. The scholarships are for respite services, such as social model adult day programs, in-home aides, companion care or overnight respite, at the grantee’s own organization or another organization. Criteria for funding include creative programs and services that are of great need in the community; that will serve a significant number of clients; and that demonstrate an ability to successfully carry out the program or service.
Amount: Grants of $5,000 each will be made.
Eligibility: AFA nonprofit member organizations.
