A Resolution to Authorize Funding for Fauquier County to Participate in the Regional Elder Care Planning Grant

Topic Description:

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Elder Care Coalition, representing 26 organizations from our region, is competing for a foundation grant to undertake a planning effort to address the needs of frail and at-risk elders and their families.  The focus of the planning activity will be to assess the needs of our aging population with a focus on in-house and community based services and to deal with issues of long-term services and support needs to enable the elderly to maintain their independence.

 

The planning phase is expected to take place over an 18-month period.

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

In order to strengthen the competitive application for Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funding, participants have been asked to provide some local cash for matching purposes.  The County Administrator has indicated, subject to Board action, that the County will provide $2,000 as a cash match.  It is suggested that these funds be earmarked from the Contingency Reserve Account.
