Foster Grandparent Program
The Foster Grandparent Program provides grants to qualified agencies and organizations for two purposes. First to engage persons 60 and older, particularly those with limited incomes, in volunteer service and then to provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of the volunteers. Grantees may consider this program to assist them with meeting their 20 percent matching share. Program funds are used to support volunteers in providing supportive, person-to-person service to children with exceptional or special needs.
