Senior Fund Awards $556,672 in New Fund Defined Grants

Proposals from seven organizations were approved by St. Louis City Senior Fund’s executive board to receive a total of $556,672 for the first of three years beginning July 1 (FY2021).

The Senior Fund’s Fund Defined grant opportunity is funding awarded to address needs of older St. Louis City residents in specific focus areas determined by the Senior Fund Board based on community needs assessments and other sources. Organizations can apply for multi-year grants up to three years.

The new Fund Defined awards that will begin in July focus on three areas: Economic Security, Homemaker Chore: Seasonal Exterior Home Maintenance, and Oral Health. More information about accessing these services will be shared later this summer.

The following organizations were selected for funding support:

  • A.T. Still University Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health – St. Louis Dental Center (Oral Health)
  • Employment Connection (Homemaker Chore: Seasonal Exterior Home Maintenance)
  • Five Star Senior Center (Homemaker Chore: Seasonal Exterior Home Maintenance)
  • Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (Economic Security)
