ACL is pleased to announce 10 new awards for the 2022 Alzheimer's Disease Programs Initiative (ADPI) – Grants to States and Communities program. The project period for these new grants is September 1, 2022–August 31, 2025. The collective award amount is $9,202,878.
An estimated 6.2 million individuals in the United States are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD); that number is projected to triple by 2050. ACL's ADPI program is dedicated to meeting this challenge by developing and expanding dementia capability in states and communities across the nation, including tribal communities. The new ADPI awardees include:
- Alzheimer’s Orange County (CA)
- Aroostook Agency on Aging (ME)
- California Department of Aging (CA)
- Latino Alzheimer’s and Memory Disorders Alliance (IL)
- MaineHealth (ME)
- Memory Care Home Solutions (MO)
- New Mexico Aging and Long-Term Services Department (NM)
- Snowline Hospice of El Dorado County (CA)
- The Arc Jacksonville (FL)
- West Alabama Regional Commission (AL)
The three-year cooperative agreements awarded will support and promote the development and expansion of dementia-capable home and community-based service (HCBS) systems that improve quality of life for people living with ADRD and their caregivers. Grantees will dedicate efforts toward a broad range of people, including those with the most social and economic need, people with ADRD who live alone, those living with ADRD in tribal communities, people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and others who are at high risk of developing dementia, as well as services and trainings for paid and unpaid caregivers.
Fifty percent of each grant will be dedicated to providing direct services that help individuals living with dementia and their caregivers remain independent and safe in their communities. To ensure program success, each new grantee will receive extensive technical assistance from the ACL-funded National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center.
