The Community Care Corps is a new grant program that will fund local models designed to increase the number of volunteer programs available at the local level to provide non-medical care to older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers. Funds are also intended to be used to evaluate which local models work best so that ultimately a national volunteer care corps could be developed. Funding for new programs and expansions of current programs will be considered.
The local model volunteer programs must:
Serve at least one of the three target populations (family caregivers; persons age 60 and older; adults with disabilities).
Be delivered in home or community-based (non-institutional) settings.
Provided services in coordination with a family caregiver, if applicable.
Recruit and train volunteers who are age 18 and older and pass a required criminal background check.
Do not provide medical, administrative or financial services.
Report regularly to us on outputs and outcomes through the use of reporting instruments that we will provide.
Survey the recipients of the volunteer services using surveys we will provide.
Amount per Award: Between $30,000 and $250,000.
Duration of Award: Between 12 and 18 months (anticipated starting on or about July 1, 2020).
There is a 25% match requirement for grant funds that may be cash and/or in-kind.
A range of types of entities are encouraged to apply. Community Care Corps wants to fund local models that represent a diverse cross section of the nation reflective of geography, urban/rural/frontier and Tribal communities, underserved and limited English-speaking populations, communities with limited support programs, etc.
UW-Madison may submit 1 application.
