Funding GIS-mapping tool for agencies that serve older adults

Today, the San Diego Foundation awarded $328,000 to six grantees. This philanthropic support of the county’s aging adults made possible through the Del Mar Healthcare Fund will increase case management and outreach services as well as create a GIS-mapping tool for agencies that serve older adults. These grants are the first in a newly established program, Our Aging Society, within the Foundation’s Health & Human Services program. “San Diego State University will receive $28,000 to develop a GIS-based map that will enable agencies to understand the demographics in their service areas and reach out to older adults in areas not currently served by any agency. ”
