Application Deadline: Friday, July 7, 2023

Community Care Corps has announced a new Request for Proposals (RFP) for innovative local models in which volunteers assist family caregivers, older adults, or adults with disabilities with non-medical care to maintain their independence. Community Care Corps will award 18-month competitive grants of $30,000-$200,000. 

In this new grant cycle, Community Care Corps, which is funded by ACL, is offering two proposal options. Applicants may apply to establish, enhance, or grow a model volunteer program that utilizes volunteers to perform nonmedical tasks, provide companionship, and support family caregivers. Applicants may also apply to build a network of screened and trained volunteer chaperones to accompany older adults and adults with disabilities in need to and from non-emergency medical appointments and outpatient procedures.

A wide range of nonprofit entities, such as faith- and community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, and service organizations, as well as state, county, and local governments, are encouraged to apply. Previously funded organizations may submit an application that proposes an entirely new program. 

Community Care Corps seeks to fund local models that represent a diverse cross section of the nation reflective of demographics and geography; urban, rural, frontier, and tribal communities; underserved and limited English-speaking populations; communities with limited support programs, and more.

An informational webinar will be held June 6, 2023, at 2:00 PM ET. The link for the webinar can be found on the Community Care Corps website. The deadline to apply is July 7, 2023, at 5:00 PM ET.
