The Board of Directors has outlined the general areas for which grants of the Foundation would comply with its mission of Educational grants directed to individuals or associations and institutions to improve the well-being and welfare of retirees of state and local governments.

  • Direct assistance grants normally not to exceed $1,000 for emergency needs of the retired member. A grant application is included in the May quarterly newsletter and grants are awarded by the Foundation Board in August.

  • Joint support programs and projects undertaken by RIPEA or other non-profit or governmental agencies that enhance the lifestyle of retired public employees.
