Purpose/Background

Boulder County Area Agency on Aging’s (BCAAA) mission is to deliver, fund, and advocate for services that promote well-being, independence, and dignity for older adults, people with disabilities, family and informal caregivers, and veterans of all ages. The AAA has long coordinated the grant funded Short Term Assistance program, which provided financial assistance for older adults and caregivers, by coordinating payments for a variety of direct client services and supports, including but not limited to rent, car repairs, utility assistance, and assistive technology.

It is our strong belief that the success of our programs lies in our strong relationship with partner entry points and community-based organizations throughout Boulder County. Resource Specialists and other staff that work directly with clients facilitate client-directed and solutions-focused resource and service coordination that supports improvements to quality of life and safely aging in place. By funding entry point organizations directly, we intend to provide a stable budget from which they may provide financial assistance targeted to those most in need. Financial Assistance funds are intended to make a significant and tangible difference for clients and are not intended to pay for ongoing services.

The Boulder County Area Agency on Aging (BCAAA) is seeking qualified organizations to administer financial assistance to (1) older adults 60 and over and/or (2) caregivers of older adults in Boulder County.
