Senior Hunger Mini-Grants
The River Valley Regional Senior Hunger Coalition is seeking project proposals for senior hunger mini-grants. At least 2 projects will be funded with a minimum of $500 up to $2,500 maximum. Projects will be designed to address at least one of the five focus areas of Georgia’s State Plan to Address Senior Hunger.
The five focus areas are:
- Today’s Seniors,
- Health Impact of Senior Hunger,
- Food Access,
- Food and Waste Reclamation, and
- Meeting the Community’s Needs.
The Coalition of Advocates for Georgia’s Elderly (CO-AGE) was begun and is led by the Georgia Council on Aging. The coalition is meant to be:
- a forum to identify and address concerns of older Georgians
a vehicle for bringing broad-based input on aging issues from across the state
a diverse group of organizations, individuals, consumers and providers interested in “aging specific” and inter-generational issues
a unifying force communicating the importance of providing supportive communities and adequate services & programs for older Georgians
