About the Grants Program

KEIRO’s new Grants Program will award support to qualified non-profit organizations and groups through a competitive, community-based review process with the goal of extending KEIRO’s resources to serve the most vulnerable older adults in the Japanese American and Japanese community. Awards will focus on two of KEIRO’s core program areas: Services to Older Adults and Support of Caregivers.

The goals of KEIRO’s new Grants Program are to:

  • Enhance the quality of life of older adults in Our Community who are most in-need or vulnerable
  • Promote culturally sensitive programs and services accessible to Japanese American and Japanese older adults
  • Strengthen systems of support for older adults through local service providers, programs, and caregiver resources
  • Advance Genki Living® holistic approach to aging issues

In its inaugural cycle, the Grants Program will distribute up to $500,000 in funding through both Small and Core Grants. KEIRO will consider request for:

  • Program Support
  • Capital Needs
  • Capacity Building
  • Core Support

KEIRO’s Grants Program will offer two levels of funding. Small Grants will provide funding for grassroots, small, or volunteer-led organizations with requests of up to $15,000. Core Grants will provide support to organizations with established operating capacity and scale. Core grants can range from $15,000 to $100,000. Proposals for program support, capital costs, capacity building, and general operating support will all be considered. The proposal deadline for the inaugural grants cycle is November 15, 2016.
