Mini-Grant Sponsorship - Governor's Advisory Council

The Governor's Advisory Council (GAC) sponsors the Governor’s Conference on Aging and developed a mini-grant program to assist rural communities, fewer than 10,000 populations, who have limited resources and need some assistance in meeting a need for the elderly living in their community. The grants range from $200 to $1,000 and help facilitate supports for senior services in those communities. Mini-grants have been used for various needs such as training and educational materials, exercise and health equipment, kitchen equipment for meals as well as developing and enhancing senior support services that are otherwise unmet in the local communities. The grant funds are obtained by sponsorships and a silent auction during the conference. These Mini-Grants are awarded during the conference. More information is available on the Governor’s Advisory Council on Aging page. 2019 Mini-Grant Application form
