Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) announces the yearly availability of federal Older American Act (OAA) funds for Federal Fiscal Year 2024 (October 1, 2023 – September 30, 2024).
MVES issues this Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from qualified organizations to provide activities, programing, and services to benefit older adults. Using available federal OAA Title III funds, MVES will provide grants that strengthen the service network, address gaps in local services, and fund programs to benefit persons age sixty and older.
Activities proposed by applicants must benefit persons age sixty (60) years and older who reside in one or more of the cities and towns in MVES’ service area. Participation in the program may be open to all age groups as long as the primary benefit is derived by persons age 60 and over or age 55 and over for caregivers. Applicants should seek to give preference to older individuals with the greatest social and economic need, including populations who are marginalized and disadvantaged by gender, disability, social isolation, sexual orientation, economic situation, race or ethnicity, citizenship, cultural and/or linguistic barriers. Please read the complete RFP for specific information, including program categories prioritized by the Older Americans Act.
