Award Eligibility and Submissions

Not for profit organizations, government agencies, and universities addressing a community need with a program or project that focuses primarily on family/informal caregivers of adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias are eligible to apply. Note: Family/informal caregivers are unpaid caregivers. The term includes family members, friends, domestic partners, and neighbors.

Support for family/informal caregivers need not be the primary mission of the organization, agency, or university. For example: past winners include a library, songwriting organization, and pubic advocacy group.

Currently, only agencies operating within the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii are eligible to apply.​

Nonprofit applicants must submit proof of their 501(c)(3) status or other nonprofit status. The nominated program or project has to have been active during the calendar year of 2017 and/or 2018. If the program or project involves a major culminating event, that event must have occurred prior to the application deadline.
