The Blueprint for Aging is one of eight communities across the U.S. awarded grants to begin implementing strategic plans to improve long-term care and supportive services systems that respond to the current and future needs of at-risk older adults. The four-year, $750,000 grants were awarded on May 1, 2006, through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Community Partnerships for Older Adults.
