NORTH CAROLINA COMMUNITIES INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN $1 MILLION KATE B. REYNOLDS CHARITABLE TRUST GRANTS PROGRAM FOR THE ELDERLY

 DURHAM, N.C., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Communities in North Carolina are being invited by the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust to participate in a $1 million grants program to improve home-based care for the elderly. Proposals for funding of up to $100,000 over a two- year period will be considered.
 "We are looking for programs that improve the system of care for the frail elderly who are at risk for being placed in institutions," says George Maddox, director of the program. "Research has shown that home- and community-based care is economical as well as appropriate for many people and that older adults prefer home care."
 The Aging at Home program is open to public and nonprofit organizations throughout North Carolina. Communities have until June 21 to indicate their intent to submit applications. Invited proposals will be due Sept. 20, and as many as 15 finalists will be chosen for consideration by the Trust. Grants will be awarded Jan. 1.
 Priority will be given to programs that seek funding under the Medicaid Community Alternatives Program (CAP), which provides help to Medicaid recipients who need nursing care. Emphasis also will be given to selecting programs that can demonstrate positive results and the likelihood of being continued after the grant ends.
 Maddox, who is director of the Long Term Care Resources Program at the Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development at Duke University, will manage the Aging at Home program for the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust. Inquiries about the program can be referred to Maddox at 919-660-7542 in Durham or addressed to Box 2920, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC 27710.
 The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, based in Winston-Salem, was established in 1947 under the will of Mrs. Kate B. Reynolds. The Trust provides support for programs that improve the health of people in North Carolina, with emphasis on the financially needy, and programs that improve the welfare of the people of Forsyth County, with emphasis on providing the basic necessities for those in need.
