I am a health care proffessional and would like to open a healthcare facility so I am searching for grants. I am a health care professional and this is something I have wanted to do. But never had the time to pursue it. Now I do and will sure every avenue to accomplish my goal for all the elderly who can not do it for themselves I need to do this or at least try. Are there grants to open a longterm care facility? I live in MA and also would consider NH.

That is a great goal and I admire your determination. It is very clear that a lot of seniors could use your services! It won’t be easy to get started but here are some ideas about where and how to begin:



Residential care facilities are regulated by different entities and requirements in each state. A good place to start is with your own state — probably first with the health department, and then see if they direct you to a more specialized agency. 

-To be eligible to receive federal funds you would have to be in compliance with state regulations, and be familiar and in accordance with the Nursing Home Reform Act and the Patient Self Determination Act. 

Also search for “Grants” on your state’s web site to see if they offer grants to support this type of venture. And try searching the federal government’s site about grants — this is a good review of along with step by step instructions for searching for specific types of grants.
