Nationally, Agencies on Aging receive federal funding through the Older America’s Act which is to finance social and nutrition services in designated service areas. Those funds are awarded through a legal request for proposal (RFP) process. In Connecticut, Agencies on Aging utilize the federal fiscal year in awarding most funds. Therefore, it is usual that federal Older American Act funds are awarded for the period of October 1 through September 30th of any given year. State funds are generally awarded and must be spent in accordance with the state fiscal year, which is July 1st through June 30th. The WCAAA Board of Directors may entertain requests for funding outside of those two fiscal years. Such letters of requests should be addressed to the WCAAA executive director.

Please refer to this page for information concerning requests for proposals for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2020 in late December 2018. The current funding round for FFY 2019 has ended.
