Retirement Research Foundation
The Retirement Research Foundation is accepting proposals from nonprofit organizations for local and national projects designed to improve the quality of life for older Americans.
Grants will be awarded in support of projects that provide direct services, advocacy, and education and training for professionals working with elders, as well as for research that investigates causes of and solutions to significant challenges faced by older adults.
To be eligible for funding, projects must have a local focus in one of the following seven states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Florida. However, advocacy, training, and research projects of national relevance will be considered from organizations located anywhere in the United States.
In 2015, the foundation will consider proposals on May 1 and August 3. Applicants who want to discuss a project before submitting a full proposal should send a brief Letter of Inquiry to the foundation at least three weeks prior to one of those deadlines.
Visit the RFF website for eligibility and application guidelines, as well as examples of previously awarded grants and grant amounts.
