Funding Available for Marion Area Services for Seniors

The Marion County Council on Aging is currently accepting proposals for services in 2013, for Marion County older adults. Complete bid packets, containing detailed service specifications and other necessary information, are now available for any agency who is interested in applying for funding.

Services to be funded in 2013 include transportation, in-home care, personal shopping, and home-delivered meals.  Funding for these services is made possible through the Senior Services Levy.

In 2012, the Council on Aging awarded contracts for home and community-based services for Marion County seniors totaling nearly $700,000.

The deadline to return completed applications is Friday, July 27, 2012.

Agencies who wish more information on how to submit a proposal should contact Bede Agner, Director of the Marion County Council on Aging at 740-387-0401.
