ACL Awards $3M to Improve Financial Security for Family Caregivers

February 15, 2024

ACL has awarded $3 million in new funding to the University of Southern California, Leonard Davis School of Gerontology (USC) to support implementation of recommendations for addressing Goal 4 (financial and workplace security) in the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers (the Strategy). The award will advance the capacity of the aging network and its partner organizations to support and address financial and workplace security challenges faced by family, kinship, and tribal caregivers.

USC will join four other organizations to form the National Caregiver Support Collaborative which supports implementation of the Strategy. The technical assistance and capacity building provided by the Collaborative will be focused on two programs authorized by the Older Americans Act (OAA) — the National Family Caregiver Support Program and the Native American Caregiver Support Program. All materials and resources developed by the Collaborative will be publicly shared so that federal, state, and community organizations across the nation can help to achieve the goal of the Strategy, which is that all family, kinship, and tribal caregivers are better recognized and supported.

This award 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.

See Notice of Funding Opportunity: HHS-2024-ACL-AOA-CGPS-0034, "Advancing Aging Network Capacity to Support Family, Kinship and Tribal Family Caregivers: Financial and Workplace Security," posted October 10, 2023.
