A grant proposal was developed to obtain funding for enhanced transportation for older adults in Long Beach, California, who desire to volunteer. Older adults are the largest growing population in the United States. The unique needs of this population have been identified; however, resources to meet their needs are limited. Transportation was identified as a significant need among older adults. Lack of transportation leads to social isolation; social isolation has shown to have a negative impact on an individuals' physical and mental health. Productive activities, such as volunteerism is one way in which to combat social isolation and promote healthy aging.
The results of the grant application and proposal are unknown. The grant was written with the intention of actual submission, but had not yet been at the time this project was completed. However, the Director of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program approved the proposal for submission of the grant. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
