Community Care Corps 2023-2025
Opens May 22 2023 08:00 AM (EDT)
Deadline Jul 7 2023 05:00 PM (EDT)
Description

The Oasis Institute has received a five-year cooperative agreement from the U.S. Administration for Community Living/Administration on Aging (ACL/AoA) to implement the National Volunteer Care Corps. This program, now called Community Care Corps, is administered by Oasis in cooperation with Caregiver Action Network and USAging. Altarum, a nonprofit research and consulting organization, is also an integral part of consulting and advising the Administrators and the program.

Through an independent review committee and competitive grant-making process, the Administrators will distribute these funds to foster innovative local models to provide volunteer nonmedical assistance to older adults, adults with disabilities, and family caregivers; and to evaluate the effectiveness of those models in different communities nationally. The Administrators will work with grantees to identify Effective Elements, conceptual approaches used in model development and implementation, that improve outcomes, reduce barriers and are replicable. These Effective Elements will be compiled into a searchable web tool that future individuals and organizations may use to develop, implement and right size a local model for their community.

Administrators are offering two proposal options. Applicants will select one of the following:

  • Option One: Funds are awarded to local organizations across the country to establish, enhance, or grow model volunteer programs in home or community-based settings. Community Care Corps volunteers perform nonmedical tasks, provide companionship, and support family caregivers.
  • Option Two: Funds are awarded to local organizations across the country capable of building a network of screened and trained volunteer chaperones to accompany older adults and adults with disabilities in need to and from non-emergency medical appointments and outpatient procedures. The administrators seek applications that reflect the needs of their community, deliver services door through door, assist with needs pre- and post- appointments, and include appropriate stakeholders. Door through door assistance addresses care recipient expectations and needs before and after non-emergency medical appointments and outpatient procedures.
