National Neighbors Silver Film RFP

National Neighbors Film RFP

As the United States suffers from historically high rates of foreclosure and unemployment, older adults across the nation are not only more numerous than past generations, but also more susceptible to financial insecurity.

Financial abuse and the economic downturn have left thousands of seniors struggling to make ends meet, unable to pay their basic expenses. Elderly Americans are seeing their savings depleted, their healthcare expenses rise, changes to Social Security – and many don’t know who to trust with their money.

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with support from Atlantic Philanthropies is pleased to issue this Request for Proposals (RFP) in our initiative to support and empower older adults nationwide. National Neighbors Silver brings community, public, and private sector partners together utilizing structured, neighborhood-focused outreach, education, and advocacy to benefit older adults.

For more information on the challenges faced by older adults, download NCRC’s issue brief, “Challenges to the Economic Security of Older Americans.

NCRC believes that film and other forms of storytelling have a powerful ability to influence and empower audiences. We seek to make a compelling documentary that makes a powerful case that an increased number of older adults are economically vulnerable and targets of financial abuse, and that all Americans share an interest in making sure that today’s seniors and future generations have viable ways to preserve their wealth, save money and ensure their economic security as they age.

All proposals must be received no later than December 7, 2012 at 5pm Eastern Standard Time. The film must be completed by June 30, 2013.
