A grant opportunity for nonprofit affordable housing owners and/or operators, housing authorities, or tribal designated housing entities serving older adults with low incomes in Michigan and Maryland looking to scale proven housing-based services and supports.

Stable healthy housing connected to services offers older adults the opportunity to age with dignity at home by supporting their physical, mental, and financial health. This grant opportunity will allow more older adults to access the housing-based services they need to thrive. This grant is a part of Enterprise Community Partners’ (Enterprise) Thome Aging Well Program funded by the Edward N. and Della L. Thome Memorial Foundation and administered through Bank of America.
