Eligibility  [hide this]

This request is open to nonprofit organizations, community-based organizations, tribes and tribal organizations and public or governmental agencies serving seniors 55 and older in King County. Small nonprofits and community-based organizations are encouraged to submit proposals. While senior centers connected to senior hubs are not excluded from eligibility, priority will be given to organizations not affiliated with a VSHSL funded-senior hub.

The County intends to support organizations that fall into one of two categories, as follows:

  • Emerging neighborhood-based or geographically-centered senior villages in areas of the county with less easy access to VSHSL-funded senior hubs, that seek support in establishing themselves and maintaining operations as a senior village; or
  • Established senior villages, especially those that may already operate in areas of the county with easier access to one or several VSHSL-funded senior hubs, that serve or intend to serve diverse populations not explicitly identified as a focus population of a VSHSL-funded senior hubs in the area of service where the senior village operates; these entities may seek support to offer opportunities for inclusive participation by diverse and low-income seniors.

Please submit your proposal via ZoomGrants. Complete proposals must include the following:

  • Responses to Summary Questions (See Attachment A for reference)
