Accessible Faith Grants

Through 2015, The Retirement Research Foundation made funds available to Chicago area houses of worship for accessibility improvements to their facilities. The Foundation hopes that such improvements encouraged increased participation in the programs, services, and activities that occur in these facilities by older adults from both the congregation and the surrounding community. Grants were awarded for up to 50 percent of a project’s total cost, to a maximum amount of $30,000.  Although the Foundation closed the Accessible Faith Grants Program, limited opportunities for funding may be available to Chicago area houses of worship that are located in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, or McHenry counties in Illinois.  Please contact the Foundation for additional information.
