A4AA will request funds to rectify loss

About $35,000 in federal funds is available for services to Nevada County seniors, which may replace some lost money.

The Area 4 Agency on Aging plans to issue a request for proposals today for legal, health, transportation and in-home services. In-home services include homemaker services, personal care and minor home modification.

In-home services in this instance means small repairs within the home, according to Gary Peterson, independent home specialist for FREED. Earlier this week, the nonprofit’s $43,000 a year funding from the agency to perform minor home modifications was discontinued effective June 30. The agency decided other services were a priority.

Peterson said county supervisors may consider providing money to support the fix-it program.

Applicants should call the agency at (916) 486-1876 for a copy of the request for proposals.

The deadline for proposals is Feb. 25.
