Three People

Are you ready to make an impact on underserved seniors in your community or your client's community?

Get up to 5,000 sq. ft. of flooring for existing or new housing, residential care facilities, or day service centers in your community – or a client’s community.

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE

Maybe you’re already working on a low-income project with a restricted budget. Use this opportunity to upgrade your design scheme and make a bigger impact in your client’s community. Or, you can approach existing day service centers, housing, or residential care facilities in your community and offer to help give a fresh look to their common spaces.

Whatch the video to learn how to participate.

 

CRITERIA

Up to 10 projects in the U.S. and Canada will be selected by a panel of experts based on the type of provider/agency, design firm fee structure, quality of the flooring scheme, and statement of purpose.

Examples of eligible projects:

  • Senior day service centers
  • Senior housing funded by HUD or low-income tax credits (LIHTC)
  • Facilities operated by PACE organizations

Any product in J+J Flooring’s line of carpet, LVT, or Kinetex textile composite flooring may be used.

Installation is also provided. Site and sub-floor conditions must be acceptable per manufacturer installation instructions. Manufacturer and installer will not be responsible for any cost associated with extraordinary site or sub-floor conditions including but not limited to: asbestos contamination requiring abatement, contamination caused by old “cut-back” adhesive or plasticizer migration, excessive relative humidity levels in concrete, or uneven or crumbling concrete sub-floors that requires leveling or patching.
