The organization will use this grant to improve care and access for vulnerable older adults by engag- ing community-based primary care providers in the Pace model. Twenty-seven grants, totaling nearly $270,000, were awarded to com- munity organizations from the new mini-grant program. The fund was established to foster new ideas and advance the move- ment to make cities and towns bet- ter places to grow up and grow old.

"At Pace, we provide opportunities for our par- ticipants to continue to contribute to society in a productive way. We are excited to receive a grant from this fund that emphasizes wellness at all ages, supporting our value of health, and encouraging a feeling of purpose at every stage of life."
