Embracing Aging Grants Program
Embracing Aging is supported by the Hahn Home Fund, which was established through the bequest of Anna Gardner. Chester H. Thomas Fund is also included in Embracing Aging.
Embracing Aging focuses on improving how people experience aging in York County.
Delivery and evaluation of programs/services best meets the needs and desires of people aged 50 and older as a result of lessons learned from Covid-19.
Indicators to measure this outcome:
Improved relevance and impact.
Increased outreach and accessibility.
Our vision is to make York County a great place to age!
Embracing Aging holds community grant cycles each year where community volunteers read applications requesting up to $6,000 and select which grants to fund. Community grant applications are shorter than other YCCF grant applications.
