Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and IHEs in multiple states to engage adults ages 55 and older in volunteer work as mentors and tutors to children and youth. Eligible states include California, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
The mission of CNCS is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering.
The Foster Grandparent Program provides grants to qualified agencies and organizations for the dual purpose of engaging persons 55 and older, particularly those with limited incomes, in volunteer service to meet critical community needs; and to provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of the volunteers. Program funds are used to support Foster Grandparents in providing supportive, person to person service to children with special and or exceptional needs, or in circumstances that limit their academic, social or emotional development.
The purpose of this grant funding is to support one or more grant(s) for Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) operations and programming within the specific geographic service areas. Within each state, there are designated geographic locations in which applicants should propose to provide FGP services. Please see the Senior Corps Replacement Grants page for information on the geographic locations, the estimated annual federal funding, the minimum number of Volunteer Service Years associated, and the application deadline.
Applicants should be aware that individual Foster Grandparent volunteers may still be serving in the geographic service areas listed in Appendix A, who were enrolled by the incumbent or previous sponsor of the FGP project in the geographic service area. Applicants should consider these volunteers in planning the FGP project proposed in the grant application and are encouraged to make efforts to allow these volunteers to continue serving in the proposed new FGP project.
