Retirement Research Foundation: Research Grants to Improve Well-Being of Older Adults

RRF funds research that seeks to identify interventions, policies and practices to improve the well-being of older adults and/or their caregivers.

Preference is given to projects aimed at generating practical knowledge and guidance that can be used by advocates, policy-makers, providers, and the aging network. Of particular interest are:
Interventional trials; translational studies; and health services and policy research
Projects that build on the investigator’s past studies
Proposals that include robust dissemination plans, if appropriate, to assure that findings reach audiences positioned to act on them
Research Grants are provided to nonprofit organizations that are proposing applied research projects that have immediate and direct implications on the adult population, age 60 and older.
