​​​Funding Opportunity (3).jpg

The Maryland Department of Aging is pleased to announce a competitive funding opportunity for grant awards under the Aging-In-Place Program, in accordance with the State of Maryland Human Services Article §10-1201. This funding opportunity aligns with the Department’s commitment to supporting Marylanders to live in their own homes and communities safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.

Like the rest of the country, Maryland is home to a population of older adults which will grow considerably over the next several decades. There are 1.4 million people in Maryland over the age of sixty and by 2030 nearly one out of every five Marylanders will be 60 years of age or older (census.gov). The majority of older adults want to age in their homes or have limited alternatives, due to the high cost of institutional or assisted living options. Additionally, older adults face the pressing public health concern of social isolation and loneliness, as outlined in the U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory on the Healing Effects of Social Connection andCommunity. 

This funding opportunity is part of the Department’s strategy to increase the resources and capacity for local Area Agencies on Aging, Senior Villages, and nonprofit organizations serving older Marylanders and their caregivers to provide high-quality services and supports, develop social connection and community engagement, and foster the cultivation of social capital, enabling older Marylanders to thrive in their communities.
