The CARES Act provides additional funding during the pandemic for the various programs authorized by the Older Americans Act (OAA). CARES Act funds will help strengthen services that support the health, safety, and independence of older adults and their caregivers challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help support community partners in York and Cumberland Counties, Southern Maine Agency on Aging will serve as a pass-through agent, helping to disseminate CARES Act funds by making one-time Mini-Grants to qualified organizations delivering vital support services to older adults and their care partners in York and Cumberland Counties. Information, as well as the application, can be found here: https://www.smaaa.org/cares.
