The Creative Aging Grant Application is now open. You can apply for this grant through our online grants system. Applicants accessing the Online Grants System for the first time must register their organizations and create an organizational profile.
The Tennessee Arts Commission is partnering with the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability and the Tennessee Department of Health to offer this grant opportunity that will provide one-time seed funding for innovative projects through the arts that will promote healthy aging of seniors and encourages community partnerships that have the potential for sustainability.
Successful projects will encourage senior creativity, physical activity, and/or community engagement through the arts. Outcomes can include using the arts for improved health and wellness; lifelong learning; reduced isolation and increased social and community connections; and/or increased positive attitudes/perceptions about aging.
