Up to $1.25M in Funding Available through CABHI’s Spark Program!

We are proud to announce that CABHI is launching the second round of funding for its Spark Program, which will be accepting submissions from September 14, to 5 pm (EST) on October 23, 2017.

The Spark program will provide up to $50,000 (CAD) in project funding to support grassroots ideas from point-of-care workers that will help improve brain health and quality of life for older adults. This year, we aim to select up to 25 projects, with a total funding envelope of $1.25 million (CAD)!

What makes this program so exciting is that we’re looking to point-of-care workers to bring their ideas forward. We believe that many of the best ideas that will improve brain health and quality of life for older adults will come from the point-of-care workers within the healthcare sector.  Therefore, CABHI is looking to allied health professionals, personal support workers, certified nursing assistants, home health care aides, direct clinical care and/or service staff, or managers of clinical care delivery to bring their ideas forward and submit an application for funding.

One of our goals is to provide solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing older adults in our community today. To qualify, project submissions for consideration will need to address one of the following themes for older adults living with dementia:

  • Aging in place
  • Caregiver support
  • Care coordination and navigation
  • Cognitive health

Do you think you have an idea that addresses CABHI’s themes?  Are you interested in receiving up to $50,000 (CAD) in per project support? If so, we want to hear from you.  Visit the program information page by October 23, 2017, to fill out your Expression of Interest form to make sure your idea is considered for this funding opportunity!
