Grants for Senior Adult Independent Living Programs in Louisiana

The Greater New Orleans Foundation is accepting applications to the Pratt-Manor Fund. Funding is intended for projects and programs to help older adults to live dignified, meaningful, and independent lives.

Nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations that serve the Greater New Orleans region are eligible to apply for funding. Organizations that are not tax-exempt but have a fiscal sponsor relationship with a 501(c)(3) organization are also eligible.

Priority will be given to organizations in three areas of work:
  • serve older adults, especially those living below the region’s median income level;
  • serve the most frail and dysfunctional older adults who are living independently; and
  • address most basic needs, including food, housing, long term care, activities for daily living, improving general quality of life, and delaying the onset of disability.

Requirements necessary to keep older adults living independently cut across project, program, and capital needs.

The following are examples of project or program needs:
  • To provide informal caregiver support–initiatives that support the work of unpaid caregivers, including friends and family.
  • To provide services and supports–basic needs and interventions designed to prevent or delay hospitalization.
  • To promote economic security–initiatives that help older adults manage their resources, or connect with benefits available to them.

The following are examples of capital needs:
  • To provide housing rehabilitation and repair services–home repairs and home modification programs designed to help older adults lead independent lives in their homes, or in independent care facilities.
  • To provide capital support for residential care and community-based facilities–capital projects aimed at developing a friendly home-like environment, including senior centers, adult day programs, and other facilities that provide non-institutional setting.

Applications must be submitted through the Foundation's online application portal.

The application deadline is July 10, 2024
