NCRC Announces 2nd RFP for National Neighbors Silver

 Selected Grantees to Address Economic Security of Older Adults Through Organizing and Education

Washington, DC — The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC), with support from The Atlantic Philanthropies, is pleased to announce its second round of funding for National Neighbors Silver, an initiative to support and empower older adults nationwide.

As the United States suffers from historically high rates of foreclosure and unemployment, older adults across the nation are particularly susceptible to financial insecurity and instability. NCRC’s recent report about the financial stability of older Americans noted that over 13 million older Americans are economically insecure, living on only $22,000 or less each year.

“Many older Americans face new challenges in this economic environment. The sharp reduction in the value of most seniors’ primary asset — their home — means that they are now especially susceptible to financial insecurity. Through advocacy, organizing and education, National Neighbors Silver supports participating organizations to directly tackle the root causes of the unique economic challenges faced by America’s older citizens,” said John Taylor, President and CEO of NCRC.
