MNRAAA Awarded $67,300 from the Southwest Initiative Foundation
MNRAAA has received a $67,300 grant from the Southwest Initiative Foundation. The funding will be used to provide opportunities for two communities to engage in an age-friendly community building process that will identify the communities’ age-friendly assets and desired assets. Each of the two communities will develop and implement initiatives that when completed, will result in new and/or enhanced assets that have a positive impact on the age-friendliness of the community and its livability for all ages.
The Southwest Initiative Foundation is an independent community foundation whose mission is “To be a catalyst, facilitating opportunities for economic and social growth by developing and challenging leaders to build on the region’s assets.” The Southwest Initiative Foundation includes eighteen counties and one hundred fifty-six communities.
