The Foggy Bottom Association, with the guidance of a panel of experts, has collected a list of money-saving and other resources for seniors. Learn about our Senior Meal Program here.
Please note that in addition to age requirements, some programs may have income requirements. In many cases participation in certain government programs (e.g. Medicaid, SNAP/Food Stamps, federally subsidized housing, etc.) means applicants already meet income requirements.
Financial well-being is important for everyone, here is a list of resources and programs that residents of Foggy Bottom may be eligible for.
