Congratulations to AAAs Selected as Recipients of Community Care Corps Funding!

Four USAging members are among the newest slate of Community Care Corps grantees, which funds innovative local models in which volunteers assist family caregivers or directly assist older adults or adults with disabilities with non-medical care to maintain their independence.

The Community Care Corps—a volunteer-based paradigm for providing services and supports to older adults, people with disabilities and family caregivers—awarded grants totaling $2.85 million to 33 innovative local models nationwide, including four AAAs, out of a competitive applicant pool of 126 organizations. The AAAs that will receive funding are Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut, Alamo Area Council of Governments (including the Bexar AAA), Aroostook Agency on Aging and Peninsula Agency on Aging. Community Care Corps grantees will provide an array of services transportation, shopping, running errands, home maintenance and repair, and teaching the use of technology.

The Community Care Corps is administered by the Oasis Institute with partnership from USAging and the Caregiver Action Network (CAN) and with funding from ACL. Research expertise is provided by Altarum. To learn more visit the Community Care Corps website at communitycarecorps.org.
