WA Foundation for Long Term Care

WA Foundation for Long Term Care

The Washington Foundation for Long Term Care (WFLTC) is a non-profit organization making dreams a reality for the dedicated staff who provide direct care and services to Washington residents in long term care. Established to enhance the lives of the people who care for long term care residents, WFLTC sponsors Scholarship Awards each year to assist long term care staff in furthering their education. The funds raised by the Foundation are distributed to fund scholarships and assist in the implementation of innovative long term care programs. The following sections provide more information on our efforts and how you can be involved.


The Washington Foundation for Long Term Care (WFLTC) accepts applications every February for Foundation Scholarships. The intent of these awards is to assist staff employed in WHCA member assisted living communities, enhanced services facilities and skilled nursing centers in pursuing or furthering a formal education to enhance the quality of care in member facilities. The Scholarship award is open to all departments. The area of study must be related to any career path in long term care. The amount awarded is dependent upon the number of applications received, financial need, and the resources of WFLTC. Learn more.
