Aurora Township is accepting applications from not-for-profit organizations and units of local government seeking $477,000 in funds for programs that benefit senior citizens.
The funds are available through Aurora Township as a result of the successful March 2018 senior services referendum, said Aurora Township Supervisor Bill Catching.
“We look forward to supporting organizations that will allow older adults in Aurora Township to remain independent as long as possible,” Catching said. “The referendum’s supporters made a clear and compelling case that more funds need to be available locally to support such programs.”
Earlier this year, the township Board appointed an unpaid advisory commission to make recommendations to the board on the new senior citizen funds. Applications are due by Friday July 19 to the township Supervisor’s office, 80 N. Broadway, Aurora, after which time the commission will hold public hearings to review the requests.
