Collaboration and Community Engagement

James Roosevelt, Jr., Leadership Fund

The Foundation supports community leaders in their work with multiple stakeholders toward a common community goal. Collaboration and Community Engagement grants support inclusive communities where older people are an asset.

This work could include current or new activities that directly or indirectly lead to age-friendly communities and address barriers to success such as limited access to transportation or health care, ageist employment policies or other conditions that contribute to the social isolation of older people.

The Foundation will consider the intersection between policy and practice as well as collaborative community work in the built environment, transportation, housing, social and civic participation and inclusion, employment, communication and information, and community support and health services.
