AARP Foundation Grant for Identifying Outcome/Evidence-Based Isolation Interventions

ARP Foundation is seeking innovative and evidence- or outcomes-based solutions at the community or societal level that optimize meaningful connections and interventions to reduce negative health outcomes highly correlated or associated with social isolation in low-income or vulnerable individuals 50 and older. AARP Foundation utilizes three common categories of evidence:

  • Preliminary: Systematically collected data that tracks who is served, and the outputs and outcomes that are achieved. The organization has a consistent method of collecting metrics related to the intervention. The metrics provide basic level of evidence that the goals of the program are being achieved.
  • Moderate: Evaluations that support causal conclusions but cannot be generalized beyond the study group.
  • Strong: Evaluations that support causal conclusions within a large range of participants or multiple evaluations supporting the same conclusion.

Eligibility Information

  • Only 501(c)(3) organizations are eligible to apply. 
  • Multiple organizations may apply as a group, but only one can be the fiduciary agent.
  • AARP Foundation has a particular interest in projects/initiatives serving Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, and Philadelphia, though organizations in any community are eligible, including rural communities.
  • Existing project(s) of the applying organization must have some level of documented evidence of providing the intended social benefit and achieving its target outcome.
