The Momentum Fund provides grants for community led projects in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island that address healthy aging with an emphasis on:

  • Age-friendly/dementia-friendly: Addresses the needs of an aging population in the community as defined by them
  • Community engagement: Demonstrates the participation and input of older people in planning and/or implementing the work
  • Innovation: Focuses on a new idea or new way of working together in the community
  • Collaboration: Demonstrates organizations working together to achieve a common goal, including a wide variety of roles that can include those not usually considered part of the aging sector
  • Inequities: Focuses on inequities experienced by older people in traditionally underserved populations and/or those who support them, including racial or ethnic groups, women, low-income, disabilities, mental health conditions, and/or immigrants and refugees, limited English proficiency, identify as LGBTQ, or live in rural communities

Applicants must have 501(c)(3) nonprofit status or have a 501(c)(3) partner that can serve as fiscal agent.
