An Important Message from The Brookdale Foundation Group

It is with deep regret that The Brookdale Foundation Group announces that the Relatives As Parents Program (RAPP) Request for Proposals (RFP) for the creation or expansion of support groups and services for grandparents and other relatives raising children, and the Brookdale National Group Respite Program (BNGRP) RFP, for the start-up of Group Respite or Early Memory Loss programs have been removed for 2020, due to the significant constraints on the ability to plan and implement such group programs and services at this time.  The tremendous uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has made it necessary to place these seed grants on hold until further notice.  We will share information on the availability of any future RFPs when such information is available.
