With State and Federal funding received through the Illinois Department on Aging, the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland awards grants and contracts to local service providers throughout the Planning and Service Area. These awards are the primary means of implementing the agency’s service goals and priorities for meeting the needs of the area’s older adults and family caregivers.
For the first year of the three year award cycle, the Area Agency conducts a competitive application process. Successful applicants may be offered the opportunity to extend their awards, a year at a time, for each of the following two years.
All funding is subject to the availability of funds to the Area Agency on Aging.
