The Maine Community Foundation has awarded $27,000 in grants to 15 Maine nonprofits and municipalities for initiatives promoting healthy aging. Healthy Peninsula and its Age-Friendly Coastal Communities program is one of the fortunate grantees.
Grants were made through the Lifelong Communities Mini-Grant Program, which helps communities be more supportive of older people’s health, well-being and ability to age in the community. The funded efforts include community planning and the development and implementation of programs that will increase opportunities for people over 60 to stay in their communities as they age.
