Meet the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly
2019 Mini-Grantees!

The Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative is excited to announce its second group of Age-Friendly Mini-Grantees. The goal of the mini-grant program is to jump-start age-friendly projects and strategies across the county. Five $2,500 mini-grants were selected for 2019. Results and experiences of the funded projects will help promote age-friendly thinking and action across Miami-Dade County. The mix of mini-grants demonstrates that municipal governments, nonprofit organizations, health service organizations, and others can play important roles in making Miami-Dade age-friendly.
