ACL is pleased to announce $3 million in new funding over four years to further advance our support of the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers (the Strategy). ACL will award one cooperative agreement for a project of national scope intended to foster advancements in two programs authorized by the Older Americans Act (OAA) — the National Family Caregiver Support Program and the Native American Caregiver Support Program.
The awardee will undertake technical assistance and capacity building activities targeted to the aging, tribal, and kinship support networks in support of the implementation of Goal 4 of the Strategy: strengthening financial and workplace security for family caregivers. The grantee will join four organizations that recently received awards to support the implementation of the other goals of the Strategy. The goal of this initiative is to ensure family, kinship, and tribal caregivers are better recognized, supported, and included in programs funded by the OAA.
The initiative is in keeping with President Biden’s Executive Order on Increasing Access to High-Quality Care and Supporting Caregivers, signed on April 18, 2023. This executive order directs federal agencies to take more than 50 actions, making affordable, quality childcare more available to working families; expanding access to home and community-based services; growing and strengthening the direct care workforce; supporting family caregivers; and more — giving us a unique opportunity to transform our long-term care systems and mitigate the challenges that family caregivers face.
