Tapping the Rich Experience, Skills, and Talents of the 55+ Population

Through grants and other resources—including the energy and efforts of citizens age 55 and over—Senior Corps helps meet the needs and challenges of America’s communities. Grants administered through Senior Corps provide funding for three special programs: 

  • Foster Grandparents connects volunteers age 60 and over with children and young people with exceptional needs.  This program is not available in Northeast Iowa.

  • The Senior Companion Program brings together volunteers age 60 and over with adults in their community who have difficulty with the simple tasks of day-to-day living.  This program is not available in Northeast Iowa.

  • RSVP offers "one stop shopping" for all volunteers 55 and over who want to find challenging, rewarding, and significant service opportunities in their local communities.
