2016 Funding Opportunities
The Retirement Research Foundation's (RRF's) next proposal application deadline is May 2, 2016. RRF is devoted to improving quality of life for older Americans. Through its responsive grants program, RRF supports:
- Direct service,
- Education and training programs for professionals working with elders, and
- Research to seek causes and solutions to significant problems of older adults.
Advocacy, training, and research projects, all with national relevance, are considered from organizations located anywhere in the U.S.
Proposals for direct service and advocacy projects that have a local focus are considered from organizations based in seven states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin, or Florida.
The Retirement Research Foundation is based in Chicago and is one of the nation’s first private foundations devoted exclusively to aging and retirement issues. Throughout its history, RRF has awarded more than $200 million for innovative projects that benefit older Americans.
