Applications are now available for the 2020 funding of community programs that service Delaware County residents ages 55 and older. SourcePoint annually awards funding to local service organizations to help address the diverse needs of the county’s older population.
Four types of grants are available for the coming year, including general grants for ongoing program requests of greater than $10,000; mini-grants for ongoing program requests of $10,000 or less; innovative grants for new program requests of greater than $10,000; and mini innovative grants for new program requests of $10,000 or less. Any program that addresses issues affecting older adults in Delaware County is encouraged to apply for funding.
SourcePoint helps fund existing programs in the county as a cost-effective, efficient way to address the various needs of older adults in the community. Each year, SourcePoint’s board of directors and other community stakeholders review grant applications and award funding to those organizations that help broaden the scope of services available to local seniors. The Delaware County senior services levy makes this grant funding available.
2020 grant applications are available online at MySourcePoint.org/grant-applications and are due by Wednesday, Aug. 14. Submit applications and all supporting materials electronically via the website.
Any organization interested in applying should contact Nancy Gernstetter, provider relations specialist, at ngernstetter@MySourcePoint.org or 740-203-2438.
