Funding opportunity announcement
May 13, 2021
During its meeting on March 26 the Council of Governments (Board of Directors) of the Area Agency on Aging & Disabilities of Southwest Washington (AAADSW) authorized the release of $1.2 million during 2021 in the form of local grants to approximately 10 local non-profit or private entities. Projects selected for funding will be designed as innovative aging services initiatives.
Through this funding opportunity, AAADSW will provide funding directly to community-based organizations serving Southwest Washington’s aging citizens, adults with disabilities and family caregivers. Eligible applicants include providers of aging services, transportation, home delivered meals, and other entities whose mission is consistent with the work of AAADSW.
“This funding allows local agencies the opportunity to expand and enhance program offerings to older adults, adults with disabilities and caregivers throughout our five-county region: Clark, Cowlitz, Klickitat, Skamania, and Wahkiakum. We recognize the increasing demand for services and believe this grant funding will help meet that demand, as well as the Agency’s strategic plan goals,” said AAADSW Executive Director Mike Reardon. “We are grateful to our Board of Directors for supporting this initiative and their continued support of the Agency’s vision – that every older adult, adults with disabilities and their family members have access to information, programs and services to help them thrive in the setting of their choice.”
