Senior Hunger Innovation Grant

The Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) Division of Aging Services (DAS) will fund up to ten innovative projects (max $3,000 each) designed to address senior hunger in Georgia. Each proposed project should fall under at least one of the five focus areas of Georgia’s State Plan to Address Senior Hunger. With nearly 300,000 seniors at risk of hunger in the state of Georgia, a broader effort to reach these seniors must be made. DHS DAS seeks to fund direct service, education, and outreach projects with evidence that older Georgians who participate in the proposed project will help to increase food security among this vulnerable population. This request for proposals is one of the many strategies DHS DAS is employing to seed initiatives that have an expansive reach, target seniors often missed, have the potential for replication, and are sustainable. Please share this RFP with your networks and let’s take our fight to end senior hunger in Georgia to the next level!
