The Caregiving Project for Older Americans, a partnership of the International Longevity Center-USA and the Schmieding Center for Senior Health and Education, announced a fourth year of funding for the Community College Training Initiative grants. The grants, offered through support from MetLife Foundation, are designed to encourage community colleges to develop training programs that are both accessible and effective for caregivers of older adults.

This year, up to thirteen grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded to community colleges and other two-year institutions. At a minimum, programs being considered must have an implementation plan that’s set to begin by September 2010, with full implementation of the program to occur by Spring 2011.
