Priorities: The Fund's aim is to support innovative person-centered interventions that will address the causes and consequences of extreme social isolation.

Preference will be given to applicants that utilize an innovative approach or expand a current evidence-based/best practice intentionally directed to benefit a segment of older adults who are extremely isolated. Strong consideration will be directed to a lead organization that will build collaboration with other agencies, demonstrate commitment to addressing extreme social isolation, identify champion to lead the effort, and express a vision of success with solid measurable impact.
