The Beacon Institute’s Grants Division seeks funding from Federal, State, and local agencies as well as private and non-public sources to finance projects consistent with the mission and goals of the Institute. We develop grant projects that:

  • Enhance quality of life for recipients of long-term care services in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and residential settings.
  • Strengthen the capacity of the workforce serving older adults, particularly in the areas of health and long-term care.
  • Improve care coordination in facilities and between facilities and health care providers
  • Promote best practices or innovative approaches in care for seniors
  • Pilot and test new practices and models for delivering services for Maryland’s elderly.
