Applications due Saturday, June 8, 2024

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) has released a new notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) to continue developing and implementing innovative local models of non-medical volunteer assistance and support to family caregivers, older adults, and adults with disabilities in order to maintain their independence. 

This funding opportunity comes through the Volunteer Community Care Corps (C3) program, which was first funded in 2019 to foster innovative local models across the country to establish, enhance, or grow model programs in which volunteers perform non-medical tasks, provide companionship, and support caregivers.

ACL’s primary objective for this new funding opportunity is the continued advancement and expansion of the C3 model nationwide. ACL’s goal is to continue to advance and expand program objectives by increasing the number of community-based volunteer programs available to provide this care to older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers at the local level.

Applicants are encouraged to use the relevant components of the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers as a guide when developing their application.

An informational conference call will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at 2:00 PM ET.
