ACL announces the 2019 awards for its state and community ADPI. The 13 newly awarded, 3-year cooperative agreements are with 4 states and 9 community organizations for a total of $10,370,642. The awardees are located in 11 states across the nation.
ACL’s ADPI program is dedicated to developing dementia-capability in states and expanding it in communities. All of the new grantees are required to dedicate 50% of their funds to direct services that include, but are not limited to, delivery of home and community-based dementia specific evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions and dementia education and training programs.
The programs are engaging in a range of activities designed to meet the needs of the communities and individuals they serve. Programs target long-term services and supports to persons living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) as well as paid and unpaid caregivers. While each program is different, all include activities designed to support special populations, including low-income and minority communities, people with ADRD who live alone, and individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities at risk of developing a dementia.
